Why It Matters

Transforming Prospects

Your chances of winning a place at one of Britain’s most prestigious universities should not be determined by your personal circumstances. Every student should be given a fair shot at achieving their dreams, with talent and hard work being rewarded by a system which gives everyone the opportunity to succeed. Oxbridge claims to be an engine of social mobility, but the reality is that both institutions reflect deep inequalities. For many state school students, the barriers to success are all too real.

Access Oxbridge is changing that. We connect state school students with a network of Oxbridge mentors to help those students win places at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With our anytime-anywhere virtual mentoring service, state school students are provided with the information, resources, and confidence required to succeed. By extending the benefits of ongoing mentorship to those who need it most, we help aspiring students beat the odds without spending a penny.
