Widening access in Scottish HE requires systemic change

On Tuesday a major speech on widening access to HE in response to a report from the Higher Education Commissioner was made by Scottish Higher Education Minister Shirley-Anne Somerville. Somerville confirmed she supported the contextualised admissions and bridging programmes, and concluding that widening access would require “systemic change” rather than further funding within the current system. In response to requested details of the Government plans to reform the student maintenance offer, Somerville suggested a response would be provided very soon.
