The deadline to submit evidence is 23 April 2013. 

We are looking for robust evidence about effective approaches and practices in widening access and ensuring success across the student lifecycle.

The evidence may be qualitative, quantitative or a mixture of both, and should have been evaluated. For more details see the call for evidence.
