National strategy for access and student success

OFFA’s work contributes to the national strategy for access and student success which we and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) developed in response to a request from Ministers.

The national strategy’s vision is that all those with the potential to benefit from higher education have equal opportunity to participate and succeed, on a course and in an institution that best fit their potential, needs and ambitions for employment or further study.
