Striving to Promote Equality and Diversity in UK Higher Education

Racism widespread across UK education system

A National Union of Students (NUS) report released on the weekend shows that racism is more widespread than previously assumed and perceptions of racism are creating barriers to the participation of Black students in further and higher education.

Findings in the report entitled ‘Race for Equality’ show that 1 in 6 Black students have experienced racism in their current institution, one third do not trust their institution to properly handle complaints, and one third feel their educational environment leaves them unable to bring their perspective as Black students to lectures and tutorial meetings.
