During the pandemic many institutions saw the awarding gap between white and BAME students fall to zero (2020-21). Since this awarding gap maintains throughout the sector. Such disparities have been further highlighted by movements for racial justice and inclusivity across the nation and on campuses. Universities must therefore act to address the awarding gap, improve the university experience, and create a truly inclusive and decolonised curriculum. These are vital steps to improve student wellbeing, reduce the attainment gap and enhance employability prospects for BAME students in higher education.

• The awarding of First or 2:1 degrees between white and Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students lessened by 4.4% between 2018 and 2021. (HESA)
• The degree awarding gap was more pronounced among part-time BAME students compared to their white peers (23%) in 2021. (HESA)
• White graduates (74%) were also more likely than BAME graduates (72%) to be in professional-level employment, according to survey data from Jisc.
