Evaluation of Advancing Access

In 2018 a full evaluation of the Advancing Access project was published - this was completed by academic staff at Durham University. Commenting on the release of this report, Dr Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive of the Russell Group, said:

“It's great to see thousands of teachers and career advisors signing up to Advancing Access and we hope many more will join in the months ahead.

“The Russell Group believes universities should be open to anyone with the ability and desire to attend, and that students from all walks of life should have access to the best advice and guidance to support their applications.

“Providing quality resources for teachers is central to this, and I am delighted the site is going from strength to strength.”

Details of academic evaluations of the Advancing Access project can be found below.

The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring have published an evaluation of the pilot phase of the programme. This is available here.

A full independent academic evaluation of Advancing Access has been completed by staff at Durham University. You can download both the summary report and the report in detail.
