Student Inclusion Team
We provide advice and support to staff, so you can help all students feel that they are part of an inclusive and supported community.
Supporting staff to develop good practice
Please contact us for advice on best practice, regulations and policies about student inclusion and supporting diversity.
You can also read our guidance on how to help and support students.
Supporting students from underrepresented groups
An important part of an inclusive community is helping students to take up opportunities on offer. If you think any of your students may benefit from these services or schemes, tell them about them or contact us yourself, for advice.
Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) students
We support and advise staff and students who are interesting in helping to create a more inclusive university for minority ethnic students. This can include developing initiatives and events, reviewing policy and procedures or helping set strategy.
Our Be More Empowered for Success programme partners with minority ethnic students who want to work with the university to improve the experiences of minority ethnic students. These student advocates are paid to provide consultation on, and help to develop programmes, curriculums, and services.
If you’d like to hear more or have any questions, please email: email@example.com our Race and Ethnicity Inclusion Officer.
The Bristol Scholars Scheme helps local students access study at the University. We offer a bespoke Building Up to Bristol course to help them transition. Then, once students are here, they are supported by our Bristol Scholars Adviser. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org, the Bristol Scholars Adviser for any advice or support needs.
Care-leavers and estranged students
We offer support to care-leavers and estranged students. Staff and students, can email: email@example.com for support and advice.
Mature and part-time students
There is support available to mature and part-time students. Staff and students are encouraged to contact our adviser on firstname.lastname@example.org for any support or advice.
We offer information and support for current students in receipt of a Sanctuary Scholarship.
Developing inclusive learning communities
We want every student to feel connected to others on their course and part of one engaged, learning community.
To support this we run:
- Peer mentoring for new students
- Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) for first-year students.
If you think your first-year students may benefit from peer learning, encourage them to sign up or contact us for advice.
