Research output: Published contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Universities strive to provide high-quality education for all students irrespective of their demographic characteristics. The Black, Minority and Ethnic (BME) attainment gap is well documented in the sector and at Solent University this was 23.8%, compared to the national average of 15.3%, in 2015-16. Since then a HEFCE-funded project has introduced two initiatives designed to help all students thoroughly understand their assignment requirements to help reduce this gap. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with lecturers who took part in the project to assess their perspectives on the implementation and effectiveness of these initiatives, and how the students engaged with them.
