The Black Excellence Network challenges the racial disparities within UK higher education and competitive courses seen between black students and other ethnicities.
Black Students at Oxford University (2020 cohort), featuring Amgad Salih – Co-founder
The Black Excellence Network is a community of aspirational black individuals. We desire to increase the participation of black students in top universities, apprenticeships and careers in the UK.
Which will further cultivate a community of inspirational black students. With the launch of a new mentorship cohort in Summer 2021, we will be increasing our involvement with Sixth Forms and Colleges, giving young people the opportunity to get involved with our organisation and widen their network.
We have a dedicated team of ambassadors and volunteers from institutions and disciplines across the nation who are committed to empowering black students and bringing the mission of BEN into fruition. Every member of the team is invaluable and aspires for the growth of our programme.
