Our access and participation plan sets out how we work to improve equality of opportunity for under-represented groups to access further study and graduate level employment. It was previously called an access agreement.

We believe that students should be able to realise their potential, regardless of their background. We engage with schools, colleges and other partners to help students from a range of backgrounds and of all ages to access higher education. We also provide additional non-repayable, financial support.

Having an approved access and participation plan is now also a requirement of our registration with the Office for Students.
