In the Summer Term 2003, the second survey of higher education providers in England was conducted. The aim of the survey was to gather information about the relevant activities that had been undertaken by higher education providers as part of their widening participation initiatives and, in particular, as a result of the Excellence Challenge programme.
This report provides key findings that emerged from the survey. An outline of the Aimhigher programme is given in Section 2. Section 3 provides an overview of the methods adopted and Section 4 presents key findings. Section 5 concludes the report.
