This is 10 years of impact
Students on the Unite Foundation scholarship have always told us how life changing the scholarship has been for them. But until now, we’ve not had enough data to be able to explore the impact of our work quantitatively or in comparison to other students.
We commissioned Jisc to undertake an independent comparative analysis of 10 years of our data. Jisc’s objective analysis suggests “strong evidence that the scholarship improves educational outcomes of the students we support, specifically in year to year progression and completion”.
Read the summary of the main findings, as well as the context of our journey to this point, or the full Jisc report (which includes all the relevant data tables).
The good news!
The report highlights that Unite Foundation Scholarship students stay on course.
Unite Foundation students progressed from their 1st to 2nd year of programme within 2 academic years at the same percentage as non-care leaver students and at a statistically significantly higher percentage to the other care leavers groups examined.
When looking at year 2 to 3 continuation, again within 2 academic years, Unite Foundation students progressed at a greater percentage than other care-leavers and within 5 percentage points of the non-care leaver population.
Finally, Unite Foundation students achieved a ‘good honours’ degree within 3 percentage points of non-care leaver students and at a statistically significantly higher percentage than all other care leaver student groups.
