Happy 10th Anniversary for Access Agreements!

The Office for Fair Access (OFFA) are celebrating their 10th anniversary today of the first access agreements being approved by OFFA.

Maddalaine Ansell, Chief Executive of University Alliance, said:

“Ten years on since their introduction, English universities and colleges are on course to meet over 80 per cent of the targets set within their 2013/2014 Access Agreements.

“This initiative has ensured people from non-traditional backgrounds can access and succeed in higher education. Our universities, where the intake of students from lower socio-economic groups is higher than the sector average, have done particularly well.

“On Access Agreements’ 10th birthday, we can all celebrate how Alliance universities are making a huge difference to social mobility in the UK – transforming lives and supporting the economy.”
