Trinity alumna Sarah Lusack has played a pivotal role in Cambridge partnering with Target Oxbridge, an innovative programme that aims to increase successful undergraduate applications from black students to Oxford and Cambridge.
Nearly 100 people attended the panel discussion, Women Making Waves, which explored the gamut of women’s experience in education, from school and university, through career progression as teachers or academics, to balancing professional and home life in a leadership role.
Girls do much better than boys in GCSEs and A-Levels. Across UK higher education, female students outnumber men, 57% to 43%. But at top levels – in exams, professorial roles and university leadership – men are still ahead.
Trinity welcomed the government announcement that EU students applying for 2018 entry to English universities or further education institutions for undergraduate or Master’s study will continue to remain eligible for financial support.
