Abstract

This roundtable was an opportunity for experts to share their lived experience of the challenges facing Gypsy, Traveller and Roma (GTR) and other travelling communities entering into Higher Education. It was well-recognised that GTR communities have the worst outcomes of any ethnic grouping in terms of health, housing, and education. These communities also continue to face significant levels of racism and prejudice both in society and from official institutions and agencies. Access to higher education offers a way through these injustices.
