Mature Students a Priority says OFFA

In its recently published Strategic Plan the Office for Fair Access highlighted several areas where it wanted Universities to concentrate more effort in their widening participation activities. One of these was attracting and supporting mature students and another was part-time and flexible learners. Both of these are now identified target groups in OFFA's Guidance for producing the next round of  Access Agreements due on 23 April 2015.
