Why IntoUniversity is Needed

Research shows that young people from the UK’s most disadvantaged postcode districts are much less likely to go to university than those in the most advantaged areas.

This isn't fair because it makes it harder for them to succeed in a competitive job market and access professional careers. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are almost 80% less likely to be in a professional job (State of the Nation report, 2020).

IntoUniversity was founded to address this issue.

We work with young people who face challenges in getting to university, providing them with a range of support through our innovative programme to help them succeed in school, improve their employability and achieve their ambitions.

Hear directly from our students about their future goals and how IntoUniversity is helping them to achieve in our Student Voices film above.

Please note that in each section of the film where multiple students feature together, these students are siblings, meaning that social distancing of the students was not required.
