The plan must be approved by the Office for Students (OfS) in accordance with the Higher Education and Research Act 2017.
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.
Access and Participation Plans:
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. For further information about Oxford’s fees and funding arrangements for undergraduate students, visit www.ox.ac.uk/funding.

Before the 2019-20 plan, universities had Access Agreements with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA).
The OfS is currently consulting on a new approach to regulating equality of opportunity in English higher education with the intention to seek new Access and Participation Plans from institutions later in 2023.
