Abstract

ESRC End of Award Report, RES-000-22-2485

Building on the concerns raised in the literature the research aimed to address the following specific objectives:
Identify the effects of 'University Cultures' on students' experience of higher education and establish if any differences occur between White and minority ethnic students.
Problematise the notion of a simple divide between minority ethnic students and White British students.
Examine the similarities/differences of students' demographics and their cultural experiences in order to explore the concept of 'belonging' and social identity within a university.
Examine social theories such as social capital (Field 2005), cosmopolitanization (Beck 2006) and mobility (Urry 2002) and assess their relevance to the experience of minority ethnic and White British students in HE.
