Student recruitment, retention and attainment

Resources on equality and diversity considerations for academics and teaching staff as well as specific guidance on admissions, attainment and making adjustments.

  • Recruitment

    Equitable student recruitment and widening access to education is key to advancing opportunity and creating a diverse student population.

  • Retention

    Student support services can play a huge role in retention. Services need to understand and respond to the needs of students with different protected characteristics.

  • Attainment

    Student attainment and employability are dependent on equal access to learning materials, career development opportunities and an institutional commitment to reducing degree attainment gaps.
