The UK government has outlined the future of higher education in the UK, which includes increasing student numbers by widening participation from non-standard entrants. The aim of this investigation was to examine changes in variables that may indicate increased widening participation in the sport science programme between two cohorts graduating before and after the government white paper (graduates from 2000 and 2006) and whether there has been a change in degree outcome during the same period. This research note explores the possible reasons for the observed changes between cohorts.
