- Increasing Participation by BAME Students at the University of Edinburgh: Understanding School Pupils’ HE Decision-Making
This Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) large grant aims to advance a multi-disciplinary understanding, and home-international comparison, of the political economies of exclusion, and how more equitable outcomes can be achieved for pupils, their families, and professionals.
In isolation instead of in school (INISS) is a study asking young people from every Scottish community to share their experiences of Covid 19 and the effects of school closures and national exam cancellations on mental health and wellbeing.
The University of Edinburgh is committed to increasing the number and proportion of undergraduate students from BAME backgrounds, with a particular emphasis on widening participation for local students, but more knowledge is required to understand existing patterns of participation and the measures which are likely to improve institutional performance.
