With many students now living at home and commuting, this places challenges on universities in developing their inclusive learning communities, whereby student activities can be appropriately scheduled. Furthermore, distinctive commuter patterns are apparent between White and BME students, where BME students tend to live considerably further away from university than White students, presenting additional challenges in securing equitable outcomes. This presentation will review some of the inclusive strategies that we have taken in terms of improving the student experience and engagement and how we have worked closely with our head of timetabling to bring about changes in curriculum delivery.
