Widening Access, Student Success, and Progress, with a focus on postgraduate taught study

In this session we will aim to explore access to postgraduate study – why it’s important to widen access at this level of study, what that looks like in practical terms and how if at all that differs from widening access at an undergraduate level, what we know already in terms of any barriers or challenges, some practical steps, and suggestions as well as some good practice at the University of Edinburgh and beyond.
