Access and Participation Plan

The Access and Participation Plan sets out how we, as a university, will improve equality of opportunity in higher education.

The plan covers how we encourage a broader spectrum of students into higher education and how we support all students to achieve their very best whilst they are studying here. We have a long-term record in supporting access, participation and success by students from under-represented groups and we are proud of the many and varied ways we support the needs of students during their time with us.

Our Access and Participation Plan has been developed in close consultation with the Southampton University Students' Union.

The Access and Participation Plan that applies to you is based on the academic year in which you started your current studies with us. To find out more about our Access and Participation Plans, please select the relevant year from the tabs below at the bottom of this page. Up until the 2019/20 academic year Access and Participation Plans were produced annually however, due to the ambition and commitment shown in our latest submission, the university have had a five-year plan approved which will apply to students starting between 2020/21 - 2024/25.
