Access Agreement 2018-19
An access agreement sets out a university or college's fee limits and the access measures it intends to put in place.
The NTU Access Agreement 2018-19 provides information about expected fee income from home/EU students and about the University's plans for using a proportion of that Higher Fee Income (HFI) above £6,000 to:
- develop and deliver programmes of targeted outreach across the student life-cycle, some involving collaborations with other institutions
- provide clear information and guidance on a range of issues to potential and enrolled students
- provide financial support to UK students from lower income households
- monitor, evaluate and maximise the effectiveness of these strategies.
The University's Strategic Plan 2015-20 has the major ambition of creating the opportunity for all our students to develop the knowledge, skills, and resilience they need to play a positive role in society. Under this aim we are working to improve student success and progression for historically disadvantaged student groups. This complements the work we are doing at the access stage of the student life-cycle. Thus this Access Agreement embodies the strategic direction of the University.
