Gypsy Roma and Traveller is a collective term for several diverse groups. These groups are significantly underrepresented in higher education, with estimates stating only 3-4% of the GRT population access university.
Gypsy Roma and Traveller students’ underrepresentation in higher education is under-researched, so we commissioned a report with The Centre for Education and Youth, an educational and youth think tank on the under representation of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils in higher education.
Read the report on barriers from early years to secondary and beyond.
Read the Tutors for GRT report on the findings of a tutoring intervention for young Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller students aged 5-18.
Due to the underrepresentation of Gypsy Roma and Traveller students at university, their applications are prioritised on our widening participation projects, including K+, and Medicine & Dentistry Lecture Series.
