Warwick to lead study into improving university outreach

A team of researchers from the University of Warwick, including Dr Emma Uprichard (Director of Warwick Q-Step Centre), is to lead a study into higher education outreach schemes.

Commissioned by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA), the project is funded by OFFA and the Sutton Trust and will investigate how universities and colleges currently evaluate outreach schemes. The study aims to improve understanding of the impact of outreach on access to higher education for students from disadvantaged groups and to improve evaluation practice across the sector.
