AccessHE exists to serve two types of stakeholder: our Member Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and their students.


We support our Member HEIs to meet their access and participation targets for underrepresented student groups. Transformative changes to the HE sector in recent times have led to calls for wider cross-sector collaboration and the establishment of the Office for Students, the new HE regulator for England. This ever-changing landscape provides HE institutions both with more opportunity and challenges to address than ever in ensuring better student outcomes for London learners.


We strive to ensure our work directly impacts those at the heart of our mission: students. This ranges from pre-entry students in our Advocates networks and partner London NCOP schools and colleges, to students currently studying in, or shortly graduating from, university. Through cross-sector collaboration, we support learners through the development and delivery of outreach activity, events, publications, online resources, media campaigns and more. Through AccessHE’s relationship with its Student Advisory Group, an inclusive and representative group comprised of students from our Member HEIs, we ensure the student voice is represented at every stage of what we do.
