The NEON Working Group aims to bring together practitioners and researchers to share best practice, innovate and test models that will:

  • Widen access to postgraduate taught and doctoral study addressing gaps where there is under-representation. This includes a project to trial the use of additional criteria in the admissions process;
  • Contribute to the depth and breadth of understanding of barriers to, and within postgraduate study, sharing research and considering intersections of disadvantage;
  • Consider metrics for the evaluation of intervention activity to support progression of under-represented groups , and within, postgraduate study;
  • Seek opportunities to share best practice at a national level

This Working Group is organised by the University of Leeds.
