Get involved! Ways that university staff and PGR students can help

As a Faculty, we are fully committed to increasing the diversity of our student communities. We have made great progress in the last few years but still have a lot more to do to achieve our ambitious targets around increasing applications from under-represented groups. We have a long history of being leaders in the field of widening participation initiatives and actively encourage any staff who want to get more involved to explore with us ways they can do this which fit with their expertise and areas of interest.
