ABSTRACT This paper aims to identify the barriers affecting black, Asian and minority ethnic
(BAME) students’ access to, and attainment in, veterinary higher education in the UK. This will help acknowledge and understand why the veterinary sector is the least diverse profession in the UK (Gyles, 2018), with veterinary nursing being worse than veterinary medicine. In Part 2, the barriers identified from a literature review of eight studies will be discussed with potential solutions. The main themes will be exposure, pathways, isolation/marginalisation, the learning environment and teaching styles.
Keywords BAME, veterinary education, diversity, attainment, anti-racism, Black Lives Matter
