Topic briefings

Our topic briefings aim to support universities and colleges to make further and faster progress. Each briefing focuses on a different topic, bringing together evidence, good practice and resources to help universities and colleges develop smarter, more evidence-led policy and practice. The briefings give an overview of what we’re seeing in access agreements, provide examples of innovative and effective practice, and pose questions for universities and colleges to think about when looking at how best to make progress in their own context and circumstances.
