Aims and objectives
Our strategic aims
We have three core aims:
- to support and encourage improvements in participation rates in higher education from low income and other under-represented groups
- to reduce as far as practicable the barriers to higher education for students from low income and other under-represented groups by ensuring that institutions continue to invest in outreach and financial support
- to support and encourage equality of opportunity through the provision of clear and accessible financial information for students, their parents/carers and their advisers.
The main way we achieve these aims is by universities and colleges implementing their approved access agreements, and through our work monitoring access agreements and disseminating good practice.
