Access and Participation Plans
Any university or college that wants to charge higher tuition fees for home/EU undergraduates must have an access and participation plan (formerly known as an access agreement) approved by the Office for Students. Access and participation plans cover full-time students and (from 2012-13) part-time students studying at an intensity of at least 25% of a full-time course.
An access and participation plan sets out a university or college's fee limits and the access measures it intends to put in place, eg 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, please look at our student finance site.
Here is the University's access and participation plan for 2020-2021 to 2024-2025 and our previous access agreements:
