Pioneers Project

The Pioneers research project will be looking at how we can best support higher education access for young people from different BAME backgrounds. 

What is the research about?

The Pioneers research project will be looking at how we can best support higher education access for young people from different BAME backgrounds. The research will explore how students feel about university access, mental health and wellbeing. The research will also be looking at variation in responses by ethnicity to see how student ethnicity might impact decisions about higher education. This project is delivered in collaboration with The University of Reading. 

Who is the research targeted at?

The Pioneers research project is targeted at students in year 12/first year of a college course.

How will the research be carried out?

The first stage of the research involves a questionnaire which should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. All students who participate will be entered into a draw to win one of five £20 Amazon vouchers. Those who participate in the questionnaire have the option to be contacted for a follow up interview later in the year. Those who are selected for a follow up interview will be paid a £10 voucher for their time. 

What will the research be used for?

This research will be written into a report to Study Higher partners about how we can improve recruitment and access resources for young people from different ethnicities. The questions around mood will also inform an Masters student’s final project.
