Equity in Attainment through a BCU Alumni Fellows Scheme (AFS)
Information for Course teams
What is the Alumni Fellow Scheme?
The Alumni Fellow Scheme (AFS) asks course teams to identify up to five recent alumni whom it would wish to bring back to the university for the coming academic year, to work alongside existing students. The identified alumni are required to reflect the diversity of the course’s student population as the AFS aims to work with programmes with significant gaps in disparities in attainment across ethnicities.
The scheme is available across all faculties and will engage with up to 10 courses in its initial phase. This will see around 100 alumni fellows in total working across the university as champions within course teams, but also as a coherent group that may be drawn together for institution wide engagements.
