Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a PhD Statistics Student, having completed my undergrad at Strathclyde in Maths and Stats.

My project is about the relationship between widening access and success at university. Widening Access is a project across the UK which helps potential students get access to university who would normally have barriers preventing them from doing so. This can range from being a carer, a refugee, living within a certain postcode, or attending a school which has a lower than average attainment record, plus many more attributes. The goal is to come up with a model which predicts whether a student will be successful at university or not.
