Sir Martin Harris, Director of Fair Access, said:
“Lord Browne’s report recommends a future funding system in which graduates contribute significantly more to the cost of their education. I therefore welcome the strong emphasis the report places on the need to put in place adequate measures so that those from disadvantaged backgrounds are not deterred from applying to courses appropriate to their interests and abilities wherever they are provided, including the most selective courses.
“This report sets out Lord Browne’s recommendations for the future, we will know more following the Government’s response and the outcome of the spending review. As the access regulator, OFFA looks forward to working with the Government and the sector on the transition to the new arrangements to ensure that widening participation and fair access are protected as far as possible.”
