OFFA and HEFCE present a national strategy for access and student success in higher education in England. Drawing on research and analysis from the UK and internationally, it has been developed in consultation with the higher education sector and with other key stakeholders.

The unifying ideal in this strategy is that everyone with the potential to benefit from higher education should have equal opportunity to do so. Higher education brings significant benefits to individuals, society and the economy. It enriches the lives of individual students, opening the door to rewarding careers and enhancing physical and mental wellbeing. Equity of opportunity also brings significant public benefit: higher education enables people to be active, committed citizens and is vital to social mobility and economic growth, building the knowledge and skills of the population to succeed in a highly competitive world. A diverse student body fosters a vibrant and cohesive intellectual, social and cultural environment. Considerable progress has been made in widening access and achieving student success in recent years. But there is still a long way to go. The national strategy will help the sector build on its achievements to date, adding fresh impetus to current and future work, delivering faster progress, supporting innovation, helping to identify gaps where more effort should be focused and maximising the impact of the investments made by Government and the sector.
