Abstract

Last year the Independent Reviewer on Social Mobility published a report on higher education access, focused mainly on England.

‘University Challenge: How Higher Education Can Advance Social Mobility’ made wide-ranging recommendations to government and the higher education sector about how they could make access fairer and participation wider.

The Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission will build on that work and will continue to focus on the contribution made by universities. In this short report, we summarise how universities have responded to the recommendations in University Challenge.

This report also provides new evidence about the scale of the fair access challenge . This evidence shows that some of our leading universities in particular have a long way to go: they have become more, not less, socially unrepresentative over time.
