Don’t forget there’s still a chance to contribute to the Student Race Equality Survey.  The survey, which supports King’s participation in the Race Equality Charter Mark, aims to gather views on studying at King’s, with the objective of generating results that will not only benefit our Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) staff and students but the whole King’s community.

The survey will close on Friday 14 November and can be accessed here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/studentraceequality
