Students and staff from the University of Wolverhampton and Birmingham City University are collaborating on this project together with regional employers to improve access for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups (B.A.M.E.) in postgraduate research study in the West Midlands. Following a bid approved and funded by Research England and the Office for Students (OfS), this collaboration will tackle persistent inequalities that create barriers for postgraduate research students from such historically excluded groups across the region.

The project ‘That’s Me!: Eliminating barriers to postgraduate research study in the West Midlands’ aims to improve access to postgraduate research study by tackling university cultures and processes, creating an enabling regional employment environment, and facilitating outstanding supervisory and peer support, geared towards championing successful research and researcher careers.

Please note this event will be recorded and made available for general viewing at a future date.
