Access and Participation Plan

The Office for Students (OfS) has approved the University's Access and Participation Plan for the period 2020/21 to 2024/25. The Access and Participation Plan sets out Northumbria University’s commitment to widening participation and equality of opportunity across the whole of the student lifecycle. An accessible summary of the Access and Participation Plan has been produced.

An approved Plan must comply with Sections 30 to 32 of the Higher Education and Research Act 2017 (HERA) and be published on the University’s website for transparency.  Access and participation impact reports will be published annually from 2022 onwards.

The OfS has recently reviewed Northumbria University’s 2019/20 access and participation plan monitoring return. Please read our impact report which summarises the progress made by the University against targets, objectives and written commitments set out in our 2019/20 access and participation plan.
