Contextual offers pilot
For 2021 entry, we are piloting the use of contextual offers for applicants offering a 2-grade reduction* from the standard offer for the following under-represented groups:
- Students from English neighbourhoods with historically low participation in Higher Education (known as POLAR 4 Quintile 1 postcodes, after the dataset used by the Office for Students to track this metric)
- UK Care Experienced students (ie qualifying students who have spent any amount of time in Local Authority care and meet associated eligibility criteria used nationally)
*Please note, programmes in Medicine and Dentistry are currently excluded from this pilot.
