The Black Students’ Campaign at the National Union of Students represents students of African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean descent, and those who self identify as Black, at colleges and universities. The campaign is launching a research project, a follow up to 2011 Race for Equality, to explore Black students’ experiences of race and racism within their educational institutions, whether they access it at colleges, universities, or as apprentices.
Black students experience inequalities in their outcomes and experiences within their education, which is recognised by government and regulatory bodies such as the Office for Students and AdvanceHE. As our education sector discusses how to address these inequalities it is essential that Black students – including international Black students - are given the opportunity to discuss their experiences.
This research project aims to expand and update on existing literature and will focus on various aspects of the academic experience, such as admissions, attainment, campus life and communities. Tell NUS about your experiences and get involved in this exciting project!
