"Every one of Scotland’s universities is committed to widening access to university to those who have the ability and potential to benefit from a higher education, irrespective of their background or economic circumstances." (Universities Scotland)
Our aim is to:
- Expand opportunity, achievement and attainment and so widen participation through carefully targeted educational opportunities, underpinned by excellence in teaching, research and guidance.
- Encourage those who might otherwise not benefit from Higher Education. Outline options and routes open to them and then help them achieve them.
- Influence local and national access policy and demonstrate commitment to inclusion through practice.
"Graduation day has been great. I have a degree and a bright future! But Access Summer School is where it all started and I will never forget that."
