Project Access is an international social enterprise fighting inequality in higher education
In the UK, students from disadvantaged areas are between five and 11 times less likely to go to a leading university than students from more affluent areas. Project Access is an international social enterprise fighting inequality in higher education.
Through their unique community of 2000 mentors working in 20 countries and providing over 10,000 hours of volunteering, Project Access has so far helped over 1,900 disadvantaged students reach their dream university.
Project Access uses its global peer-to-peer mentor network, to match talented applicants with current students at the world’s best universities. Its mentors provide applicants with information, application feedback and support throughout the application process. Some mentors even go beyond this, and act as role models for high school students in their own country or community by giving talks and doing outreach workshops.
Project Access is supported by the Entrepreneurship Institute’s King’s20 Accelerator.
