Evaluation of a programme to improve access and participation for black, Asian and minority ethnic students in postgraduate research study
The Office for Students (OfS) and Research England (RE) have adopted a joint approach to improving access and participation for black, Asian and minority ethnic students in postgraduate research (PGR).
As part of this approach, they have launched a funding programme that has provided nearly £8 million to 13 projects. Overall, 25 lead and partner higher education providers are using these funds to carry out innovative interventions designed to address racial inequalities in PGR. In partnership with the Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education (TASP), EDIT are evaluating the programme.
