Abstract

All universities in England which charge higher tuition fees for Home/EU undergraduates must have an Access and Participation Plan (APP) which it submits for approval and monitoring to the independent regulator of Higher Education (HE) in England, the Office for Students (OfS). In 2018, the Evaluation Team were asked to evaluate the Access Covenant (AC), an intervention first detailed in the University of Lincoln’s Access Agreement 2017/18 (UoL, 2016) to support students experiencing disadvantage including individuals from Lincolnshire, identified as a social mobility cold spot in recent years (Social Mobility Commission, 2017). This Research Notice details the findings of that evaluation.
