Kingston University helps fly flag for BAME students

KINGSTON UNIVERSITY'S Support for Academic Progression initiative aims to improve the retention, continuation, and attainment of students at higher risk of underperformance, notably black and minority ethnic (BAME) students.

Evaluation has shown that BAME students who participated in the programme had significantly higher progression rates than BAME students who did not participate. To encourage improved results, Kingston University has invited high-profile speakers from BAME backgrounds to talk about their careers and the barriers they overcame.

Additionally, Kingston’s student ambassadors are carefully selected to reflect the diversity of the university’s student population, with 50 per cent of ambassadors coming from BAME groups.

The ambassadors act as role models to prospective students, supporting the access, transition into higher education and success of under-represented groups.
