Yes, we can. At Herts, we have a strong record in terms of widening access and participation, which is evident in our student population and the proportion of students from under-represented backgrounds.
Just under 70% of our undergraduate, UK/EU student population are from under-represented backgrounds. This includes students who identify as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), students from parts of the country with the lowest progression to higher education, students on incomes below £25,000, and students who declare a disability.
We will support and strongly encourage the employers we work with to reflect the diversity of our students in their engagement activities. We actively host events and projects to promote diversity, for example the Inclusive Futures fair, that brought together students from diverse backgrounds with employers actively seeking diverse talent. The event was attended by more than 90 employers and 1800 students.
