ROTA’s research focuses on UK-domiciled students from global majority and Gipsy, Roma, Traveller (GRT) communities at London universities. Statistically, applications from students from these backgrounds have risen in the last five years, but there are also more withdrawals among these groups.  

Covid-19: is there an opportunity for a new approach to informal exclusions?


The Department for Education has produced a guidance document for schools when they re-open in September after the Covid-19 closures.  ROTA has some thoughts.  

The period of lockdown has proved particularly challenging for some pupils, particularly those from disadvantaged communities. Refugees, asylum seekers, children from some BAME communities and from Gipsy, Roma and Traveller families have had difficulty accessing support and education resources.
