Episode details

Are Britain's universities doing enough to help disadvantaged students get a top class degree? Not according to Dr Suriyah Bi, who argues that Covid 19 has added further obstacles to the goal of securing wider access to higher education. Dr Bi, who grew up in inner city Birmingham draws on her own personal experience as well as research carried out for the Equality Act Review.

She is joined by recent graduate Alisa Anwar who reflects on her experience as part of the "Covid Cohort" who graduated in 2020.

Plus the Bye Bye Brexiters - Byline Times editor Peter Jukes reflects on the Leave campaigners who want Britain to leave the EU, but don't quite love the UK enough to permanently live here,
