What do students think about contextual admissions?
This is the title of a policy report produced by Hugo Dale-Harris, Policy Officer at HEPI and which came out in July 2019. Hugo kindly accepted an invitation from the FACE Executive to lead a discussion on his report as part of the September Executive Briefing session. We are grateful to Hugo for meeting with the Executive and for facilitating a lively and productive discussion. I have attached the slides from the briefing session which offer a very useful overview of the student survey data which underpins this policy report. Hugo posed the two following quiz type questions to kick off his presentation to the Executive.
- What % of students support contextual offers “making lower grade offers to students who grew up in disadvantaged areas”?
- What % of students know if their own institution makes contextual offers?
The answers to these and many other key questions on this topic can be found by downloading the slides below.
