This page contains a downloadable guide to contextual admissions processes at Russell Group universities.

The guide explores some of the factors which may result in an application being flagged as contextual and also lists some of the ways in which flagged applicants may be treated differently in the admissions process. Advice is provided on how to best support students through contextual admissions processes.

Every university has its own admissions policy, therefore our guide refers to some general principles of contextual admissions. Below you can find links to the particular admissions policies at each of the 24 Russell Group universities. If you have any questions about a particular university's admissions policy, please contact that university directly.
