Student Recruitment


Black, Minority and Ethnic Groups (BME)

Whilst in many ways ethnic minorities are not under-represented in higher education, patterns vary tremendously depending on a number of factors.

These include a reluctance to moving away from family, favouring specific subject areas that perhaps don't reflect the job market, motivation, aspirations and attainment and a lack of encouragement from key influencers. Teesside offers a range of events, activities and information to help alter these patterns.

If you have a young person who is a refugee or asylum seeker, entering higher education can be complicated due to a number of factors, including their status, previous qualifications and funding eligibility.

If you would like to enquire about their eligibility, please contact Matthew Greco,
