Join the annual Access to higher education and student success summit for 2019, dedicated to tackling issues surrounding access and participation in higher education. Featuring sector experts and seasoned practitioners, this event will provide you with the insight and practical tools you need to execute an effective strategy at your institution.

In February the then Universities Minister Chris Skidmore called for greater improvement on access, and last year the Office for Students rolled out new regulation on this topic.
