Studying as a Parent: A Handbook for Success
As more establishments charge the top tuition fee of ÃÂ£9000, we have seen an increased drive to widen participation into higher education. The Office For Fair Access (OFFA) reports that 172 universities and colleges have received approval to charge the top fee in academic year 2015/16 (2014a). OFFA requires all establishments charging this amount to have an Access Agreement (2014b), and are now requesting that universities research and evaluate the support they provide (2014c). With rapidly-growing, evidence-based support services on hand, how useful is a handbook for student parents?
