Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) has once again been ranked the top TEF Gold Rated University in the UK for widening participation in higher education.

Figures released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency this week as part of its annual Widening Participation Survey show BGU continued to significantly outperform both its institutional and regional benchmarks for entrants from state schools and low participation neighbourhoods, placing it top of the TEF Gold rated universities, top in the East Midlands and fifth overall in the UK.

The purpose of the survey is to explore the work done by universities to encourage and promote the inclusion of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. This can include students who are the first of their family to attend university or in receipt of disabled students’ allowance (DSA).

The Vice-Chancellor of BGU, the Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil, believes that the University’s ongoing success in widening participation is testament to its focused desire to make higher education as accessible as possible:

“At Bishop Grosseteste University our student experience is specifically designed to ensure that students are able to reach their potential, regardless of their prior attainment or educational background and it is fantastic to see that our efforts are continuing to make education accessible to those who want it.

“We make a conscious effort to identify and nurture students with the potential to achieve great things. Our ability to spot talent is clearly appreciated by both students and employers as evidenced by our high retention and post graduation employment rates”.

If you are interested in pursuing a future in higher education but are unsure on how to get started, contact our Enquiries Team who will be happy to answer any questions you might have. You can also find more information on our TEF Gold rated courses on our website.
