IntoUniversity

IntoUniversity

IntoUniversity is a national education charity aiming to address underachievement and social exclusion among young people by offering an integrated, multi-stranded programme, consisting of:

– After-school academic support
– Sustained one-to-one mentoring
– Specially-devised aspiration-raising workshops, in collaboration with schools, corporate partners and universities
– Student enrichment and work experience opportunities

Each strand is a combination of subject-based learning and aspiration building, supporting young people aged 7-18 to access Higher Education or another chosen aspiration, by working collaboratively with schools, their families and the local community.

In 2018-19, IntoUniversity supported over 40,000 students across the UK and currently operates 31 centres and extension projects in 13 towns and cities across the UK, with plans to expand the network further into other social mobility ‘cold spots’. Young people from the UK’s most disadvantaged areas are nearly five times less likely to go to university and 15 times less likely to enter a top university, than those in the most advantaged areas; IntoUniversity has demonstrated evidence of impact with 68% of our students progressing to university in 2019 compared with 26% of students from similar backgrounds nationally.

‘The IntoUniversity model compliments mainstream education and nurtures a holistic outlook on progression. Having worked with IntoUniversity for a number of years, one of the many strengths is the fact that IntoUniversity respects and embraces the history of the community; and respectfully broadens future outlooks and aspirations for the parents and children of the local area. IntoUniversity are committed to a long term approach with regards to child development: children are supported from Year 4 to Year 13.’ Assistant Headteacher, Hackney.
