Widening Participation

We welcome applicants from communities underrepresented in academia

We recognise that privilege currently plays an important part in who succeeds in a career in academia. Inequality in outcomes is particularly evident for students who come from black minority ethnic or low-income backgrounds, or who are living with a disability. This is something that our PhD programme and King’s College London are keen to help change. If you are part of a community that is historically under-represented in research, please be encouraged to apply.

If you have further questions or concerns, register here for more information and to attend a virtual Q&A session (on 2nd of October 2020, 4-5pm) about how we are looking to create a diverse and inclusive environment for our PhD cohorts. The event will be attended by current PhD students and supervisors from historically under-represented groups, and you will be able to ask them any questions you might have about their experiences. For now, check out some of their voices below.
