Video: ethnicity and attainment lecture
In UK higher education, White students tend to achieve higher grades than students from other ethnic groups. This is across subjects, including medicine. The gap is only partly explained by differences in entry qualifications, background characteristics and variations in the student experience. On 18th April 2011 UCL's Race Equality Group organised an event to discuss these disparities. It included the following presentations:
Dr John Richardson (The Open University): Ethnicity and attainment in higher education Dr Katherine Woolf (UCL Division of Medical Education): Ethnicity and the academic performance of UK medical students and doctors
