MMU has a diverse student body, however ‘diversity’ is measured or conceptualised. The question of diversity is an aspect of the Widening Participation policy. This project set out to explore student understanding of the concept and reality of diversity, and to research views about the impact of diversity on teaching and learning and other aspects of student experience. The intent was to utilise the different vantage points of the two lead researchers (in social and natural science disciplines) to compare student views across two faculties. It was hoped that discussions with students in focus groups would provide the opportunity for a variety of different viewpoints to be expressed, and for different aspects of ‘diversity’ to be explored
