Project Access is an international social enterprise that fights inequality in higher education by widening access to top universities. We help underprivileged students apply for, gain admission to and succeed at top universities – for students, by students and forever free of charge.
A world where passion and potential
define your future


We help bright disadvantaged students into their dream universities

...and we'd love for you to join us!


The Problem

Disadvantaged students are less likely to apply, less likely to receive an offer and less likely to graduate than their higher-income peers - even when they receive the same exam results.


Our Solution

We've created a highly effective, global mentorship network to match talented applicants with current students. Our mentors help students apply, gain scholarships and meet their entry requirements.

We also work directly with university admissions teams to help implement cost-efficient, high-impact initiatives, using the insights we've gained by helping over 1,000 students apply to top universities.


Our Impact

Last year 63% of our applicants received an offer from a top university, compared to an average success rate of 15% for the universities we target.
