Access agreements for 2017-18: key statistics and analysis

1. OFFA has approved 198 access agreements for 2017-18. These access agreements are

all available on our website.

2. This document presents key statistics from our assessment of access agreements. It sets

out:





how universities and colleges have responded to our strategic guidance, and

summarises changes in the targets they set themselves

the access agreement process, including details of our negotiations

details of estimated expenditure under access agreements

a sector-wide picture of tuition fees.

3. Further details, including data on planned access agreement spend and tuition fee level

at an institutional level, are available in the tables at the back of this document.

Response to strategic priorities and targets

4. OFFA’s access agreement guidance, which is informed by guidance to us from Ministers

and Government policy, explains what we want to see in access agreements. We update

our strategic guidance annually, and we are pleased by the responses to our 2017-18

guidance which we have seen from institutions.

Increased focus on improved outcomes for BME students and access for disadvantaged

White males

5. In particular we have seen an increased emphasis in access agreements on activity and

support for students from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds, and measures

to address the under-representation of White males from economically disadvantaged

areas.

6. Institutions continue to investigate whether they have an unexplained gap in attainment

for their BME students. We have seen an increase in targets which seek to address

unexplained attainment gaps – with 22.3 per cent of institutions having a target in this

area (33.3 per cent of these are new targets for 2017-18). In addition, 40.6 per cent of

access agreements describe work to improve access for BME students and 30.7 per cent

describe activities to support attainment rates for BME students.

7. In response to our guidance, there has been a substantial increase in mentions of

activities to support disadvantaged White men to enter higher education. Around a third

(33.7 per cent) of institutions have included information on activities relating to improving

access for White British men from disadvantaged backgrounds, with 10.9 per cent of


institutions setting a specific target in this area. Of these targets, 81.8 per cent are new

for 2017-18.

A greater emphasis on progression to employment and further study

8. We are pleased that institutions continue to set themselves targets across the whole

student lifecycle, supporting disadvantaged students to enter higher education, through

their studies and then as they prepare for employment or postgraduate study.

9. An increased focus on this stage of the lifecycle is evident this year, with 70.7 per cent of

institutions setting a target around progression – a significant increase compared to

2016-17 access agreements.

10. The vast majority (94.4 per cent) of institutions set a student success target.

Progress on long-term outreach and collaborative targets

11. There are clear benefits to collaborative work on fair access, including: increased

engagement with students and potential applicants; better co-ordination of work;

economies of scale; reduced duplication; and shared knowledge and learning. Our

strategic guidance asked all institutions to consider setting collaborative targets. While

85.4 per cent of higher education institutions (HEIs) and 69.3 per cent of further

education colleges (FECs) have set at least one collaborative target, we accept that

some institutions are at an earlier stage in this work and were not able to set one this

year.

12. All institutions have at least one target relating to access. In addition, 86.6 per cent of

institutions have set a target relating to long-term outreach – around a third of these are

new targets. We are very pleased by institutions’ commitment to work in this area.

Support for students with mental health issues and specific learning disabilities

13. Our guidance asked institutions to consider how best to provide support for students with

mental health issues or specific learning difficulties, or who are on the autistic spectrum.

Sixty-two per cent of institutions have set broad targets relating to disabled students and

some of these broad targets may cover the specific issues in our guidance, but just 4 per

cent explicitly refer to mental health issues, specific learning difficulties or the autistic

spectrum. We hope to see more explicit targets set in this area in future access

agreement rounds.

The access agreement process

14. We met our commitment to institutions to make a decision on their access agreement by

the end of July if they had submitted their draft agreement by 27 April.

15. All 198 access agreements were ultimately approved, but 111 access agreements were

not approvable in their original form and required negotiation between OFFA and the

institution. These negotiations, which are carried out by OFFA staff and – where


necessary – the Director of Fair Access to Higher Education, are a crucial tool for us in

ensuring institutional commitment to fair access.

16. In our negotiations for 2017-18 access agreements, we secured:




improved targets at 94 institutions

increased spend at 37 institutions

a change in balance of spend at 24 institutions.

Access agreement investment

Access agreement investment increases

Figure 1

17. Universities and colleges estimate they will invest £833.5 million in steady state under

their 2017-18 access agreements (see Figure 1). This is 10.3 per cent more in cash

terms than predicted in steady state under 2016-17 agreements (£755.6 million), and

represents 24.6 per cent of income from tuition fees above the basic level, consistent

with 24.7 per cent under their previous access agreements. This is in line with our

expectations on investment.

18. The increase in cash-terms investment was enabled by the increase in the tuition fee cap

for institutions participating in year one of the Teaching Excellence Framework (see

paragraph 24). We expected institutions to maintain their commitment to fair access, and

to invest a similar proportion of their increased higher fee income in fair access activities.

As a result of this expectation in the context of additional higher fee income, there will be

substantially increased resource committed to access, student success and progression

activities.

Increased spend on activities across the student lifecycle

19. Estimated expenditure on access activities increases to £171.1 million, up from

£149.5 million under 2016-17 access agreements. This is equivalent to 5.0 per cent of

higher fee income, compared to 4.9 per cent from the previous agreements.


20. For the first time, student success spend is now higher than access spend. Estimated

expenditure in this area will increase to £185.7 million (5.5 per cent of higher fee income),

up from £148.4 million (4.9 per cent of higher fee income) under 2016-17 access

agreements.

21. Progression spend has also increased in cash terms but has remained broadly similar in

terms of percentage spend. Estimated expenditure on progression activity will increase to

£68.0 million (2.0 per cent of higher fee income), up from £54.7 million (1.8 per cent of

higher fee income) under 2016-17 access agreements.

Financial support: spend increases, but institutions rebalancing their spend towards

activity

Figure 2

22. While financial support has increased in cash terms, the proportion of higher fee income

being spent on financial support has reduced. Institutions estimate they will spend

£408.7 million on financial support under their 2017-18 access agreements (compared to

£399 million in 2016-17 access agreements). This equates to 12.1 per cent of higher fee

income, compared to 13.1 per cent under 2016-17 access agreements.

23. Figures 2 and 3 provide a comparison of investment between 2016-17 access agreement

steady state predictions and 2017-18 access agreement steady state predictions.

Fees

24. The Government has announced that higher education providers with satisfactory quality

assessments will achieve a rating of ‘meets expectations’ under the Teaching Excellence

Framework and will be able to raise their fees in line with inflation (the full list of

institutions eligible for year one of the TEF is available online). The fee cap for these

institutions for 2017-18 is therefore £9,250.

25. For 2017-18:


121 HEIs (98.4 per cent of HEIs with access agreements) and 13 FECs (17.3 per

cent of FECs with access agreements) will charge a maximum of £9,250 for some or

all of their courses. This is a total of 134 institutions (68 per cent of all institutions with

access agreements).

36 institutions (18 per cent of institutions with access agreements) will charge £9,250

for all of their courses.

26. Based on institutions’ predictions, the average full-time fee before fee waivers for new

system students will be around £8,996 in 2017-18. This compares to an average full-time

fee of £8,788 in 2016-17, an increase of 2.4 per cent.

Further details are in the following data tables.

**Assumes a flat fee of £6,000 for FECs without access agreements. Our analysis of HEIFES data indicates that there are around 18,300 and 16,200 full-time higher education students at FECs without access agreements in 2016-17 and 2017-18 respectively


Table 3a: Access agreement expenditure (in cash terms) in steady state (2020-21), by type of spend and institution

This table shows the estimated access agreement expenditure by institutions in steady state (2020-21) on:

- access, student success and progression to employment or further study activity

- financial support by type:

- bursaries and scholarships for students from lower income households and other under-represented groups

- fee waivers for students from lower income households and other under-represented groups

- financial support where the institution is offering students a choice

- hardship funds

The estimated expenditure figures for 2017-18 are also provided for information.

Expenditure on access, student success and progression to employment or further study activities accounts for expenditure recorded in access agreements only, this does not reflect the total activity spend for widening participation across the sector. Other funding sources may include charitable donations, HEFCE funding, or

funds from external organisations. For further information on overall investment in widening participation, please see the 2014-15 monitoring report (OFFA publication 2016/04).

Table 3b: Access agreement expenditure (as a proportion of higher fee income) in steady state (2020-21), by type of spend and institution

This table shows the estimated proportion of fee income above the basic fee to be spent by individual institutions in steady state (2020-21)

The estimated expenditure figures for 2017-18 are also provided for information.

Expenditure on access, student success and progression to employment or further study activities accounts for expenditure recorded in access agreements only, this does not reflect the total activity spend for widening participation across the sector. Other funding sources may include charitable donations, HEFCE funding, or

funds from external organisations. For further information on overall investment in widening participation, please see the 2014-15 monitoring report (OFFA publication 2016/04).
