Our Mission

AccessEd exists to increase access to university and higher education for young people from under-served backgrounds around the world.

We are creating a global network of partner organisations committed to this mission, sharing with them our expertise, resources and support.

How we work to support young people and educators

AccessEd was started by the co-founders of The Brilliant Club, an award-winning and independently-evaluated university access programme in the UK. We established AccessEd to share our expertise and to promote access to higher education for young people from under-served backgrounds around the world.

We work in four key ways:

    • As a capacity-building and co-design partner charity that collaborates with global education entrepreneurs on creating a high-impact university access programme for under-represented young people in their region or country (GrowUni)

    • Collaborating with universities and institutions to deliver academically robust subject, curriculum and guidance materials that can help increase participation in higher education through targeted online learning or teacher programmes (ReachUni)
    • Offering unique professional development workshops to university students and post-graduates to build their skills for the future (LeadUni)

    • Working with corporates on school or university programmes that marry our expertise of working with higher education pathways and researchers with 21st-century skills preparation to bridge the gap for more young people in key sectors. (Innovation Projects)
