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 August 2019, the University of Oxford was notified that its Access and Participation Plan for 2020-21 had been approved by the Office for Students for a period of five years.
