Roehampton’s commitments to fair access and equal opportunities are central to our mission as a university. The success of all our students in their academic studies and beyond graduation is at the core of Roehampton’s strategic vision, and is central to our 2020/21 Access and Participation Plan (APP).
Eliminating the attainment gaps in student attainment is a strategic priority for the university, and in our APP we set targets to achieve the following:
- Reduce the degree awarding gap between the most and least deprived students (English IMD) to nine percentage points by 2025, with the goal of closing the gap by 2028.
- Reduce the degree awarding gap between white and black students to ten percentage points by 2025, with the goal of closing the gap by 2029.
- Eliminate the degree awarding gap between white and Asian students by 2025.
The charts below show how our degree-awarding gaps have narrowed for our target groups over the past five years. The full transparency dataset for 2020/21 qualifiers can be accessed via the link below.
