OFFA has today published their new topic briefing 'Estranged Students'. The briefing gives a broad definition of 'estrangement' and some background research on the characteristics of estranged students. OFFA will in future be looking for more evidence from higher education institutions on how they support this niche cohort of students and the briefing gives examples of what some universities are already providing for them.
Alongside the OFFA briefing, the TImes Higher has today published a blog by Becca Bland, Chief Executive of Stand Alone: 'The students with no support network'.
