A deadline for applications, before which equal consideration is guaranteed, is a mechanism for managing applications in a timely manner for consideration.
SPA has developed a short briefing paper to highlight key points about equal consideration in admissions. Equal consideration timelines are critical to achieving the aim cited in the Schwartz Report of, "Equal consideration for all individuals, regardless of background, to gain admission to a course suited to their ability and aspirations."
SPA would be interested in any developments within individual HE providers on equal consideration deadlines, and would be happy to advise on any considerations or proposals. Please feel free to contact us with any queries.
