RAS Research Programme

Staff across UAL have been taking part in the RAS (Retain, Achieve, Succeed) Research Programme.

Staff have led research projects exploring the disparity between the levels of degrees attained by home Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and home white students. 

The institution and the curriculum in different subject areas are the focus of the study, rather than the student body as such.

Here we provide an overview of the RAS research programme, conference, exhibition, the Inclusive Arts Education Forum (IAEF), research and publications, and education and training activities.
