University of Bradford recognised for social inclusion
The University of Bradford, one of GHWY’s 13 partners, has been named the UK’s University of the Year for Social Inclusion 2020 by The Times and Sunday Times.
The national award recognises the University’s impact on social inclusion which ensures that all students are supported to achieve their potential and achieve success, regardless of their background.
Universities across the UK were assessed on a number of measures, including the proportion recruited from the most deprived areas, mature, and first general students (i.e. their parents did not attend university).
Some of Bradford’s key achievements are that more than 50% of its intake is from the most socio-economically deprived areas, and more than 70% of students are BAME. It also has one of the country’s lowest black attainment gaps.
