Organisation Description

IntoUniversity is an award-winning education charity which provides local learning centres where students from disadvantaged backgrounds are inspired to achieve. Young people from the UK’s poorest backgrounds tend to do less well at school and are far less likely to go to university. IntoUniversity provides long term academic support, motivation and encouragement to give young people a fair chance of realising their full potential.
