Brunel Student Success Project- Art Slam Volunteers
Details of the Charity:Share this
The Student Success Project is working to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed at Brunel University London. One way of measuring student success is by looking at the attainment of ‘good degrees’. An attainment gap is the difference in ‘good degrees’ – a first or 2:1 classification – awarded to different groups of students.
Research by the Higher Education Funding Council England (HEFCE) in 2015 showed that across the UK, Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) students are less likely to achieve top degrees compared to white students. This gap persists even once factors such as entry qualifications, socio-economic status and subject area are controlled for.
