Did you know that at UAL, Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) students are 21% less likely to graduate with a 1st or 2:1 in comparison to their white coursemates?
And for those who are international students, 45% will graduate with a 2:2 or 3rd?
This year, while we continue to tackle the attainment gap, we will be focusing on liberating the curriculum; auditing the reading lists and course content to ensure that more women and BAME artists, theorists, and lecturers are included.

Did you know that Black and International students at UAL are 20% less likely to graduate with a 1st or 2.1? This is called the attainment gap and as part of our campaign this month, we've organised a discussion on how students and tutors can come together to co-create a curriculum that is global, and representative.
