Help tackle inequality
Going into higher education is not as equal and fair as it should be. Some groups of students don't have the same opportunities.
We're working to eliminate these inequalities, and there are plenty of ways students can get involved too.
User testing opportunity: We're currently looking for a diverse group of students to help us test how universities and colleges tell us about the progress they are making in tackling inequality.Find out how you can help
