From academic year 2019-20, access and participation plans will replace access agreements.
Access and participation plans set out how higher education providers will improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education.
- the provider’s ambition for change
- what it plans to do to achieve that change
- the targets it has set
- the investment it will make to deliver the plan.
Access and participation plans only cover our undergraduate UK and EU students.
Students are covered by the most recent access and participation plan or access agreement in place at the time they started their studies. This agreement will then cover them throughout their studies even if the university introduces new access and participation plans in subsequent years.
