Being Successful doesn't make you better than anyone else


The “Inspirations” website is an initiative led by the Student Success Project to share the experiences of our Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff and those considered first in family to attend university. It celebrates their achievements and highlights the great contributions our staff are making to university life.

By featuring our BAME and first in family staff we aim to inspire both existing and future staff and students, whilst also recognising that our biggest goal is to break down the institutional barriers standing in the way of their representation and progression.

Inspirational Speakers

We also promote an extensive Inspirational Speaker programme delivered by our Student Success Project Schools, and details of past and future events can be found under the Student Success main menu 'Events' tab.


It is really important for us to understand the impact the site may have, so your feedback is invaluable in terms of shaping and growing our future work. Please take a few minutes to let us know your thoughts by emailing


We plan to continue expanding this website, so if you would like to be featured, want to find out more about what is involved, or host an Inspirational Speaker Event, then please contact us:
