Some of our programmes are targeted at prospective students in Greater London, Essex, Kent or Sussex. We also run online and residential programmes where places are prioritised for students outside of London.
Research shows that postcodes are a strong indicator of post 16 educational outcomes. There are large differences in entry rates to university between neighbourhoods with high levels of deprivation and those with low levels. Young people from areas with high progression rates are themselves more likely to go to university.
You can look-up the level of young participation in higher education using your postcode on the Office for Students webpage here.
