Mapping and evaluating the use of contextual data in undergraduate admissions in Scotland

As part of SFC’s Impact for Access project, a major study into the admission of disadvantaged learners onto degree courses at Scottish universities was commissioned.

Widening access

Mapping and evaluating the use of contextual data in undergraduate admissions in Scotland responds to the challenge set by the Commission on Widening Access to ensure that university admissions systems do not perpetuate the disadvantages learners have faced earlier in life.

The work was led by Vikki Boliver, Professor of Sociology in the School of Applied Social Sciences at Durham University.
