Find an access agreement
Any university or college that wants to charge higher tuition fees for home/EU undergraduates, and/or postgraduates on PGCE or initial teacher training courses, must have an access agreement approved by the Director of Fair Access. Access agreements cover full-time students and (from 2012-13) part-time students studying at an intensity of at least 25 per cent of a full-time course.
An access agreement sets out a university or college’s fee limits and the access measures it intends to put in place e.g. outreach work and financial support. It is a technical, strategic document and so, if you are a student or prospective student, this is not the best place to find out what support you are entitled to or what fees you will be charged. If you’re looking for this kind of information, the best place to look is usually the student finance pages on the website of the university or college you’re interested in.
You can find all approved access agreements here. Simply scroll down the list and click on the name of the university or college you are interested in. Or use the search facility: you can search the list alphabetically and by institution type i.e. higher education institutions (HEIs), or further education colleges (FECs).
School-centred initial teacher training providers (SCITTs) no longer need access agreements but you can see an archive of previous SCITT access agreements.
