 POLAR is an acronym for Participation Of Local Areas, which is used in the UK Higher Education (HE) sector as a measure of disadvantage? It is founded on postcode. The UK Government compiles statistics on how many young people in different postcode regions typically go into HE. The 20% of areas with the lowest participation rates are designated as “Quintile 1” (Q1), the top 20% are “Quintile 5” (Q5), and so on.
 A "Care Experience Student" is a student who has been, or is currently, in care, or from a looked-after background, at any stage in their life, no matter how short, including adopted children who were previously looked-after. This care may have been provided in a one of many different settings such as in residential care, foster care, kinship care, or through being looked-after at home with a supervision requirement.
 The UK Office for Students defines "estranged students" as students between the age of 18 to 24 who are not communicating with either of their parents. Consequently these students lack the support of a wider family. They may be estranged before entering higher education but can also be at risk of estrangement or becoming estranged during their studies.
