Abstract

This is the UEL case study report for the Ethnicity, Education and Employment (EEE)
project. In accordance with the overall aims of the project, this case study looks at the
perceptions of students, graduates, university staff and employers about the effectiveness
of policies and strategies at UEL aimed at supporting (Minority Ethnic) student participation
in Higher Education (HE). The case study was conducted through both desk research and
fieldwork including: the analysis of institutional policies; the analysis of institutional
statistics; interviews with Senior Managers, non-senior managers, students and
employers; focus groups with students; and participant observation.
The following report is an analysis of the findings; section 2 describes UEL's institutional profile, and aims to portray the institutional characteristics of UEL in order to make
comparison possible with other institutions participating in the project. Section 3 explains
the methodology used in UEL case study including the target groups in the study. Section
4 is an analysis of the institutional student statistics relating to ethnicity; and section 5 is a
study of the institutional policies and practices on Widening Participation (WP), Graduate
Employability, and Equality and Diversity. Sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 cover the analysis of
interviews with Senior Managers, non-senior mangers, graduates, and students. Section
10 briefly illustrates the employer's view on graduate employability. Sections 11 and 12
present the institutional findings and recommendations developed from the desk based
research and fieldwork results. These recommendations are based largely on the findings
from the qualitative interviews, especially those with students, given the focus of this
project on qualitative student centred research.
