Our access and participation plan sets out how we work to improve equality of opportunity for under-represented groups to access further study, achieve success at University and progress to graduate-level employment.

We believe 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 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.
