Do BAME students experience a sense of belonging and acceptance at Edinburgh University?
The Centre for Inflammation Research is currently seeking 50 BAME UK domiciled undergraduate students to take part in a PTAS funded research study. This study, headed by Dr. Mohini Gray, explores why students from BAME backgrounds have a lower chance of achieving a successful degree outcomes as compared to their white counterparts. We are seeking student opinions on the factors that contribute to the award gap and their awareness of actions being taken by Edinburgh University to address it.
These interviews will explore students’ sense of belonging here at the University in Edinburgh, as well as what steps must be taken to increase BAME student achievement. Interviews will last one hour. Students will be paid with a £20 voucher. Participants must be UK domiciled students. Undergraduate students from all departments welcome. Any students wishing to participate should email Sarah Shemery at firstname.lastname@example.org
