Publications for prospective students 

Student access and success publications  

The University is firmly committed to being an open and accessible university that pro-actively seeks out students capable of benefiting from higher education.

The University’s strategy for widening participation is set out in our Access and Participation Plan with the Office for Students (OfS) and is overseen by the University’s Access and Participation Strategy Group. The Access and Participation Plan covers the whole of the student lifecycle, from increasing the entry rates of widening participation students into higher education to improving retention and attainment rates while at university and supporting progression into graduate-level employment or further study.
