Diverse backgrounds

Please let us know whether you think your university does enough to attract and cater for students from a diverse range of backgrounds?

2016

"Absolutely. There's a very large number of students from many backgrounds, though certain groups naturally tend to stick together."
"Leeds offers scholarships to lots of students for both academic achievement and for overcoming diversity. They are well advertised and easy to apply for. The scholarship programme is unique in the number of students it supports both financially and by providing welfare. It really makes a difference to less advantaged applicants."
"Grants are available to help students from less advantaged backgrounds. Access to Leeds means people are given equal opportunities to apply."
"There is a wide range of societies for people from different countries such as the East African society and French society."
"I think it could be more inclusive but it does okay."
"I know that there are lots of different societies for different ethnicities and they all tend to put on different nights where they introduce their cultures to others. Also, there are lots of different culture awareness weeks that people from any background can join."
"There's loads to attract students from all backgrounds, there's not really anything more they could do."
"As someone with mixed heritage, I do feel that enough is done. However, I do know that some groups feel under-represented."
"There's a lot of international students and things are provided for them to make sure Leeds is a welcoming place."
