Abstract

Neil Williams and Lucy Jones also focus on graduate outcomes by investigating the impact that research studentships can have, especially in the case of black and ethnic minority (BME) students, where there is a recognised attainment gap, at and beyond graduation. Their paper reviews the operation of a research internship scheme at Kingston University which has had a positive impact on graduate outcomes, with significant percentages achieving good, including first class, degrees and without the attainment gap previously identified for BME students. This effect is also clearly discernible beyond graduation, with participants in the research internship scheme achieving enhanced employment outcomes, across the participating student population
