Access and Participation Plans

Access and participation plans set out how higher education providers will improve equality of opportunity at undergraduate level for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education.

For the College, they include:

  • our ambition for change
  • what we plan to do to achieve that change
  • the targets we have set
  • the investment we will make to deliver the plan.

Students are covered by the most recent access and participation plan in place at the time they start their studies even if the provider introduces new access and participation plans in subsequent years. Further general information about plans can be found at Office for Students.
