Are you from an Ethnic Minority Group? Your Views Needed!

December 8, 2014

The University of South Wales is committed to addressing racial inequalities and creating an inclusive environment.

To help us do this, we are involved in a race equality charter mark which is being rolled out across universities. As part of this we are conducting a survey to gain the views and experiences of students who identify as being from a minority ethnic background. We want to hear your views on studying at USW and whether you think there is anything we can do to advance race equality.
