University partners

The Access Project is building strong relationships with universities to help deepen our impact.

Our impact data, verified by UCAS, shows that 92% of our students applied to a top university, versus 54% of young people from similar backgrounds who we do not support.

By partnering with us you can support students from disadvantaged backgrounds to raise their attainment and ability to apply. You can also inspire talented young minds by giving your graduates, staff and alumni the chance to gain key skills whilst contributing to your widening participation aims, as tutors on our respected programme.

The Access Project are always looking to collaborate with universities on shared priorities to improve attainment and close the access gap for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. If you would like to discuss this further please contact our Head of University Partnerships, Alice Reilly.
