Black Student Success: film screening and expert panel Q&A 

Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY) has teamed up with Leeds Trinity University (The Race Institute) and The Educate Group to host a free online watch party as part of Black History Month.  

The award-winning short film ‘Re:Tension’, which delves into the experiences and aspirations of a black student, will be shown on Tuesday, 31 October at 12.30-2pm and again at 5-6.30pm. Each screening will be followed by an interactive Q&A with an expert panel. 

The event aims to shed light on the experiences of black students in UK Higher Education (HE) and provide valuable insights for their success. During the event, Leeds Trinity University will share the latest findings on experiences of black students in HE.
