'Name and shame' unfair universities

Click to follow

A report by the education charity the Sutton Trust reveals that three of Britain's leading universities – Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol – have fewer than one in 100 students from poor homes.

The charity is calling on the Office for Fair Access, charged with ensuring all universities adopt fair admissions procedures, to "name and shame" those that fail to take action.

Under plans to raise tuition fees, any university wanting to charge more than £6,000 a year has to have wider participation.
