This session introduced the Office for Fair Access (OFFA's) access agreements, demonstrating how universities in England can include outward student mobility within these agreements under the key themes of student success and progression to employment.
From research into the outcomes of mobile students, including UUKi’s Gone International cohort studies, we know that mobile students have better degree outcomes, lower unemployment rates and higher starting salaries than their non-mobile peers, and that outward mobility can therefore play a role in closing the attainment gap.
Colleagues from Kingston University and King's College London presented on how they have included outward mobility activities within their access agreements to help their widening participation students access these life changing opportunities.
