Widening participation is the opening up of the university to under-represented groups. Here at King’s College London we’re committed to finding the brightest minds regardless of their background and supporting them in accessing higher education. Widening participation is one of the eight strategic priorities for King’s College London. Each year we develop an fair access agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) that sets us clear benchmarks for our progress in supporting key groups. At King’s we believe a diverse study body enriches the education that we offer.
