Response to UUK Fair Admissions Review

13 November 2020

In response to Universities UK’s Fair Admissions Review recommendations, Cat Turhan, Policy Analyst at the Russell Group, said:

"Applying to university is a crucial moment in students’ lives, and it is vital that we have a fair, transparent admissions system that works for all applicants.

"We welcome efforts to build greater trust and public understanding of the offer-making and admissions process to show that the system is working in the best interests of students. Our own report, Pathways for Potential, reiterated the commitment of Russell Group universities to that goal.

"We look forward to working with UUK on a full consultation of its findings, including how to address the practical challenges a post-qualification admissions system may present as well as ensuring contextual admissions are used effectively for students and universities."
