Thank you for visiting our website – you’ve just taken your first step to changing a young person’s life.

Since IntoUniversity was founded in 2002, we have been driven by the belief that it is possible to change society for the better. And that belief has taken us a long way. Since those early days IntoUniversity has grown into the UK’s leading university access organisation and our staff, working in close-knit teams, are transforming the futures of thousands of young people each year.

Each year IntoUniversity recruits around 50 graduates on to our highly acclaimed Graduate Scheme. Joining the scheme means that your day will never be dull. Based in one of our local learning centres, you’ll deliver our education programmes to young people in the heart of their communities, where you’ll support them to gain either a university place or another chosen aspiration.

On joining us you’ll begin our intensive training programme with your cohort, and you will receive ongoing support and further training throughout the two-year Graduate Scheme and beyond. We’ll give you both a strong grounding in working with young people and a great introduction to a career in the charity sector.

We believe that our Graduate Scheme is one of the most exciting in the charity sector, providing exceptional training and experience, and the opportunity to work with young people and colleagues who will challenge and inspire you.

If you share our vision of creating a fairer society in which all young people have the chance to succeed and you would like to be part of an organisation that will enable you to excel as a professional in the charity sector, then IntoUniversity could be the perfect career choice for you.

How will COVID-19 affect my application?

We are delighted that our centres have reopened in line with government guidelines. Nevertheless, we recognise that the circumstances may change and bring additional challenges for how we recruit and train new staff. The structure and timeline of the selection process, start date and training programme are therefore subject to change. We’ll keep you updated during the selection process.
