The AccessHE BAME Forum will look to support the progression and success in HE of London students from Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and will build on the success of the AccessHE Prepare to Succeed Conference in December 2016. This is an extremely important part of the access to HE agenda in London and specific focus on it via AccessHE is perhaps overdue. Over half of students entering HE from London come from BAME backgrounds yet the differences in outcomes for these students compared to what they should be need addressing and participation rates by BAME group vary greatly.
After the first meeting of the forum, in March 2017, AccessHE will be looking to appoint a regular Chair of the forum, drawn from colleagues at AccessHE member institutions.
