Aston University’s Access Agreement and Scholarships Programme has been approved by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) for students joining the university in 2014-15.
Aston’s access agreement continues the Institution’s success of promoting Accessible Excellence in supporting students from a wide range of backgrounds.
Key Elements of Aston’s commitments for 2014 -15 include:

Aston is one of only a handful of Universities in the UK’s top 30 to consistently exceed its government benchmarks on social inclusion.
