Improving access to leading universities for disadvantaged students is integral to the social mobility agenda, and inextricably linked to job prospects later in life. The Sutton Trust is continually working, through our programmes and research, to ensure the social makeup of leading universities is more reflective of society, and provides opportunities to all.

Research in this section addresses a range of topics to do with universities, including university fundraising, admissions strategies, and pathways to professions. Much of the work in this section overlaps with targeted research in categories like university access and student finance.
