We connect state school students with Oxbridge mentors

Access Oxbridge is a free online mentoring service which connects state school students with mentors from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. We believe in breaking down barriers to success and creating an education system where hard work and talent is rewarded.

We Do Things Digitally

We believe in the power of digital. Our mentorship program uses virtual one-to-one digital mentoring hosted exclusively through the Access Oxbridge App. Each week, our students meet with their Oxbridge mentor for a one hour video tutorial which can be attended through phone, tablet, or laptop: anytime, anywhere.

Access Oxbridge is the UK’s first digital social mobility organisation. We want to transform social outcomes in all four corners of the UK by harnessing the incredible power of digital technology to connect the UK’s most talented students.

We use algorithmic matching to connect students with mentors with similar backgrounds, interests and personalities

Digital Technology
