We welcome applications from individuals with lived experience of disability and people from the African Diaspora, from the South, East and South East Asian Diaspora and who are ethnically diverse, as these voices are currently underrepresented in our individual institutional programmes. Therefore, our decision process will include ethnically diverse and disabled representation.
