With admissions to foundation year programmes in the news recently as a result of the Augar review and other pronouncements by government ministers and members of the press, these contributions explore the challenges of an inclusive admissions process for FY study and how this has been complicated by the current pandemic.

We invite colleagues to join us for a round-table discussion, focused on the resources below, that will be taking place on Monday 20th July, 14:00-15:30.  To join the conversation, colleagues must first join the Annual Conference Teams site, which you can do by signing up here: https://tinyurl.com/FYNAC2020

Once you are a member of the Teams site, you can join the conversation taking place in the Inclusive Admissions channel.
