Black students in the UK have done relatively well in gaining access to higher education but, once they are at university or college, their experiences are often difficult, and characterized by isolation and discrimination. This book examines black access to, and progression in, higher education and is illustrated throughout by quotations from black students. It asks: what is the experience of black students in higher education? How can institutions act to enhance both black access to and experience of higher eduction? And how can both quality and equity be assured? John Bird considers, for example, working with schools and black communities, staff and curriculum development, ethnic monitoring, the development of black support groups, and the black experience of the labour market after higher education. This is an important book for higher education policy-makers and for academic staff.
