  • Farhana Begum, Senior Tutor in Family Law¬†
  • Fatmata Daramy, Widening Participation Coordinator
  • Keith Dye, Director of Student Services and Career Development
  • John Watkins, Director of Employability
  • Mohammed Ilyas, BME advocate and alumnus
  • Hanane Mohamed, Aziz Scholar

During the visit, Foundation staff were given a tour of campus facilities, including of the library services and lecturer theatres. The team also heard of the vital work being carried out through the BME advocates scheme at the university, as well as efforts to develop a widening participation programme. There was also an opportunity to speak to Muslim students – including a current Aziz Foundation scholar – about the student experience on campus.
