Abstract

The Prime Minister recently pledges to make university admissions ‘name-blind’, responding to statistics which showed a significant racial imbalance in terms of who is admitted to university, with obvious implications for social mobility, fairness, and access to higher education. Steven Jones argues that while this idea is in some ways sensible, it overlooks other more significant barriers when considering widening access.
