This dedicated area for universities and colleges aims to give you all the information and guidance you need to keep your access agreement up to date and in line with best practice.

2019-20 onwards

From academic year 2019-20, access agreements are being replaced by access and participation plans agreed with the Office for Students (OfS). For more information, please refer to the OFS guidance for that process.
Access agreements for academic years up to and including 2018-19 remain in force for students covered by those agreements.
