It is the only European-based, non-profit organisation with a specific focus on access and widening participation for disadvantaged and underrepresented groups.
The Secreteriat of the EAN is based at Roehampton University, United Kingdom. It is organised for educational purposes and operates under English Law. Membership is international and open to all those with an interest and commitment to achieve a more inclusive higher education in Europe and beyond.
The membership structure we put in place reflects the needs and profile of our members as well as providing a more flexible arrangement to encourage longer-term commitment by members with a digressive scale for up to 5 years.
