Overview about Access and Participation Plans

From September 2018, any university of college that wants to charge tuition fees for home/EU undergraduates above the basic level must have an Access and Participation plan that has been approved by the Office for Students. 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.

2019-20 ACCESS AND  PARTICIPATION PLAN

Our Access and Participation Plan for 2019-20 was approved by the Office for Students.

The plan explains how we aim to improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from LIPA. It includes our ambition for change, the measures we are putting in place to achieve that change, the targets we have set and the investment we will make to deliver our plan in that year.

Subsequently we have undertaken a monitoring return for the Office for Students and an impact report has been produced, which we have included in the document downloads below.
