Black and minority ethnic students - Be More Empowered

BME student experience at the University of Birmingham. View video transcript here.

Welcome to the website for BME (Black & Minority Ethnic) students here at the University of Birmingham. There is lots of information here that both supports and celebrates student success.

Nearly a quarter of University of Birmingham students are from Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds; the fourth highest number of undergraduate BME students in the Russell Group of universities. BME students appear to be attracted to the University of Birmingham.

The University is committed to supporting student success.

This toolkit is for staff and students who want to explore a new way to support BME student success in the Schools. It offers a basic guide on what to do and explains how a pilot progressed in one School in 2013/14.

In 2014/15 it is intended to expand this scheme and to get many more ambassadors working within the schools to better represent BME student experience. Please contact Jane Tope for more information at
