Innovative Applicant Selection Models In PGR Admissions
The University of Cambridge has commissioned the Careers Research & Advisory Centre (CRAC) to help evaluate a project that aims to halve the Offer Rate Gap (ORG) in postgraduate research study admissions for UK-domiciled Black, Bangladeshi, and Pakistani applicants by 2025. In a four-year project, the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford will trial and assess different selection models and measures, with the aim to reduce the observed offer gap.
Drawing on its expertise in doctoral recruitment, selection processes and diversity, CRAC will provide independent, external evaluation expertise, consultancy supporting best practice identification, and additional advisory inputs across the project.
