star this property answer text <p>Widening participation to Higher Education is a priority for this government. The government wants everyone with the capability to succeed in Higher Education to have the opportunity to benefit from a university education, regardless of their background.</p><p>This year, record rates of English 18 year olds, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have entered full-time university. However, more could and should be done. That is why in the department’s first guidance to the Office for Students, we asked them to encourage providers to make further progress in ensuring that students from: areas of low higher education participation; low household income; and/or low socio-economic status, can access, participate and succeed in higher education, including at the most selective institutions.</p><p>In addition, a new transparency condition requires higher education providers to publish application, offer, acceptance, non-continuation and attainment rates by socio-economic background, gender and ethnicity. This will provide greater transparency and help drive fairness on admissions and outcomes.</p><p>Prior attainment is a critical factor and the government have asked higher education providers to take on a more direct role in helping to raise attainment in schools as part of their outreach activity. All universities are expected to help raise attainment and support school improvement, including through school sponsorship and by establishing new state schools.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We have seen record numbers of English 18 year old black and minority ethnic (BME) students going into higher education over recent years and entry rates for all ethnic groups increased in 2017, reaching the highest recorded levels. Improving access and outcomes in higher education for ethnic minority students is a priority for government.</p><p>Through the Higher Education and Research Act 2017 (HERA), the government has introduced sweeping reforms to tackle equality of opportunity. This includes the Transparency Duty, which will for the first time, require all universities to publish applications, offer, acceptance, dropout and attainment rates of students by ethnicity, gender and socio-economic background.</p><p>The HERA places a statutory duty on the new regulator, the Office for Students (OfS), to promote equality of opportunity for disadvantaged and under-represented groups in higher education, not just access. This includes non-continuation and attainment levels of students from those backgrounds. Through our first guidance on access and participation plans, we have asked the OfS to encourage providers to build on the work already underway aimed at increasing the success of ethnic minority groups in higher education.</p><p>In addition, the HERA has created a Director for Fair Access and Participation so that widening access and participation for disadvantaged students is at the core of OfS functions.</p><p>The OfS’s regulatory framework will include the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework, which will assess providers on how well they are delivering positive outcomes for all students, including those from under-represented groups.</p><p> </p>
