Access and Participation Plan

The plan must be approved by the Office for Students in accordance with the Higher Education and Research Act 2017. From 2020 Access and Participation Plans will be reviewed every three to five years, and universities are required to provide information to the regulator on progress towards targets. The University of Oxford’s Access and Participation Plan includes details of current access targets, other access, success and progression measures, and financial and other on-course support available to students.

In February 2019, the University submitted a review of its undergraduate financial support package to the Office for Students in support of the development of the University of Oxford’s 2020-21 Access and Participation Plan.

It is expected that the 2020-21 Access and Participation Plan will be available to view on this page from July 2019, following review and approval by the Office for Students.

Before the 2019-20 plan, universities had Access Agreements with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA).
