Dr Nana Sartania (University of Glasgow) and Dr Clare Ray (University of Birmingham) talk about widening participation and medical schools focussing on the following question: Who do we regard the widening participation students? Is this categorisation adequate/justified? Are we missing any students who need help but are not targeted, based on the current criteria the universities use? – As a society, do we need to try to widen access to traditionally elite University subjects such as Medicine, Law etc? If pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds want to go and study Medicine, what barriers do they face? Is that different from pupils from privileged backgrounds? What help is available to them to overcome the barriers? (from parents, schools, target medical schools)? The help they get from med schools - is that enough for them to do as well as their privileged peers? Once the students gain a place on the course, are they on a level playing field?
