The Access Project

The Access Project supports bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds to secure places at the UK's best universities.

We do this by matching students with a volunteer graduate for weekly tutorials and by supporting each student in a range of other ways so they have the confidence and ability to make a strong application to one of the UK's best universities.
