The University of Chester has received approval of its new five year Access and Participation Plan 2020/21 from the Office for Students. All earlier plans, going back to 2006, have also received approval from either the Office for Students or the Office for Fair Access.  

Access and Participation Plans set out the University’s plans for continued investment in activities to ensure equality of opportunity in access, success and progression in Higher Education for all underrepresented groups. The plans provide details of where the University needs to make some improvements in its performances of underrepresented groups and it also provides full details of fee levels and the financial support and packages we offer here at the University of Chester.

The University's past and current Access and Participation Plans are below and any Access Agreements prior to 2014/15 can be accessed and downloaded directly from the Office for Students (OfS) website​.
