WAP Plans

Information about the WAP Plan


Ulster University is welcoming and inclusive with a reputation for widening access to higher education and increasing social mobility.

As a civic university we are committed to providing learning opportunities for everyone with the ability to benefit from them, and we excel in participation by those in society who are under-represented in universities generally.

One of the means by which the University assures that it is widening access and participation is through its annual Widening Access and Participation Plan.

The contents of this plan are audited by government to ensure that reinvestment of  a proportion of the additional tuition fee paid by students is administered wisely, effectively and in accordance with the Higher Education (Northern Ireland) Order 2005.
