IntoUniversity - UK

Learning centre in Brent

'I cannot praise enough the IntoUniversity scheme and the connections they help create.'
James - IntoUniversity, Mentor
IntoUniversity provides local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. At each local centre they offer an innovative programme that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Years: 2007, 2008, 2009

The ALMT embarked on a three year partnership with IntoUniversity to fund a new learning centre in the borough of Brent.


The vision of IntoUniversity is to provide a national network of high quality, local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. At each local centre IntoUniversity offers an innovative programme that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration. IntoUniversity now has 12 learning centres operating across London, Nottingham and Bristol, and has plans to run a network of at least 20 centres by 2017. IntoUniversity is focused on supporting children and young people at risk of educational underachievement and social exclusion, working with them to raise their aspirations and improve their life chances. The majority are from ethnic minority backgrounds and other social groups currently under represented in higher education.


The key ingredients of the IntoUniversity service are: daily after-school academic support, FOCUS weeks, days and weekends, mentoring with corporate and undergraduate volunteers and aspirational training courses. IntoUniversity is different because it starts working with children as young as 7 and supports them over the long-term to achieve their goals. By operating from specialist local centres they offer a multi-stranded service in order to raise the aspirations of each individual child.
