Kingston University has won a Guardian newspaper award for teaching excellence, receiving specific praise for the inclusivity and accessibility of its courses.
The Guardian panel commended Kingston University on its groundbreaking work reducing the attainment gap between black and minority ethnic and white students. In particular, the panel highlighted the inclusive curriculum framework which provides staff with access to short animations, research findings and case studies that help demystify inclusivity. Activities that have driven the development of the framework include equality and unconscious bias seminars for staff, as well as training for more than 400 students on what influences high exam results.
Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Education Dr Clarissa Wilks said "This award highlights the pioneering work of Nona McDuff, Annie Hughes and the entire Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team, as well as the remarkable students studying at Kingston University."

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
