Office for Students (OfS): Access and participation data and consultation findings

This data release provides key findings looking at the full student journey from access, to continuation, and completion of courses. Unfortunately it shows that students from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education are less likely to complete their course.

Alongside this data, the OfS has published its new Equality of Opportunity Risk Register (EORR) which attempts to provide a framework against which institutions can identify which risks might apply to them, which students are most at risk and take measure to mitigate these risks. It has also released details of the EORR consultation findings and the OfS responses to these, and a commentary by John Blake, the OfS Director for Fair Access and Participation. You can read the full report here.
