I have applied for a social work course at this university which requires the students to have placements in either Greater Merseyside, Cheshire West, Chester or West Lancashire. I am black and have visited Chester before and felt extremely uncomfortable the whole time that I was there. I have also had friends tell me that some areas in Greater Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire can be racist. Can any black students who have done or are doing a social work course at this university tell me if they have experienced any kind of racism in the university, at their placements or just day to day living around this area?

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.
