Widening Participation to Research Degrees

SRHE 44 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4LL

21st September 2010 1pm – 4.30pm


Paul Wakeling (Lecturer in Education, University of York)

Professor Liz Thomas (Edge Hill/Higher Education Academy)

Access to research degrees is a neglected topic in higher education research and policy. ‘One Step Beyond’, the recent review of postgraduate education for BIS, raises the possibility that inequalities addressed at undergraduate level will reappear among postgraduates and calls for an investigation of access to postgraduate study. Research degrees are the source of higher education’s future labour force, but questions of access to doctoral study have been little debated.

This joint seminar between SRHE’s Postgraduate and Access and Widening Participation Networks will include a presentation of the recommendations of a recent research synthesis of the subject commissioned by ESRC. It will provide an opportunity to discuss an agenda for future research on widening participation to postgraduate study in general and doctoral research in particular.

This event is partly funded by RCUK
