Widening Access Impact and Dissemination

WAP Impact, Student Success and External Dissemination


WAP Impact Objectives

The university seeks to:

  1. Collate and understand WAP data to ensure effective decision-making related to target setting, performance monitoring, identification of areas in need of additional support for students and ensuring that resources are allocated where they are most needed.
  2. Capture the impact of WAP interventions and projects which have led to student success and can be measured by improved student satisfaction, retention, attainment and/or learning gain.
  3. Disseminate the impact of projects which have led to successful student outcomes.
