Abstract

This document presents the outcomes from the Office for Fair Access' (OFFA's) and Higher Education Funding Council for England's (HEFCE's) monitoring of access agreements, widening participation strategic statements, and the National Scholarship Programme for 2012-13. Overall, at a sector level, it shows that in 2012-13 universities and colleges significantly increased their activity to widen access and improve student success among students from low income and other underrepresented groups; spent a larger proportion of the income they received from charging fees above the basic level on access and student success measures than in 2011-12; increased the average level of targeted financial awards for individual students from low income and other underrepresented groups; delivered National Scholarship Programme awards over and above the minimum number required; met, exceeded or made progress towards the great majority of their access agreement milestones and targets; reported an increasingly evidence-based approach to choosing where they focused investment/activity; worked collaboratively, particularly around outreach and evaluation, and aligned their work on equality and diversity more closely with their work on access and student success.
