At the heart of any ULLL initiative are the principles of inclusion, accessibility and equity. Historically, universities have been the preserves of elites, and even if this has changed significantly over the past decades, with a record number of students enrolling in higher education, certain learners, including those with low qualifications, from minority groups, with disabilities, or with caring responsibilities, remain underrepresented at higher education institutions. Universities need to be proactive not only in recruiting learners from these populations, but also in making sure that they are provided with the opportunities and support they need to flourish during their time at university, and to become active members of the university community.
