View of Colchester Campus lake
Through our Access and Participation Plan we will invest in our inclusive and diverse student community, providing opportunity for those who have the potential to benefit from our University's excellence, irrespective of socio-economic background or ability to pay.

Our Access and Participation Plan

Our Access and Participation Plan is based on the following principles:
  • recruiting students nationally with the merit and potential to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered by our University, irrespective of socio-economic background or ability to pay, and improving access for students from under-represented groups
  • increasing retention and progression, and improving attainment for students from lower socio-economic groups and ethnic minorities 
  • increasing student levels of achievement and ensuring the mechanisms to educate our students increase their prospects of securing a good degree
  • supporting our students to achieve their aspirations in terms of both further study and employment
