Our Mission

An inclusive, high-quality education is a key driver of social mobility and reducing inequality. A university education can bring a range of economic and wider benefits to individuals and societies. However, in many countries, access to university remains the preserve of the most advantaged. 

AccessEd exists to increase access to university for young people from under-served backgrounds globally. In particular, we will focus on high-need young people in areas with income inequality. We deliver a number of UK and international tutorial and curriculum programmes to improve student pathways to higher education and opportunities.

AccessEd has created a global network of partners and programmes that build target inventions to address the issue of university access. Working in Botswana, Malaysia, South Africa, Hong Kong, Ireland, the UK and more, we have helped kick-start initiatives that use the expertise and experience of university researchers to support young people locally on their education journey.

“A university education can bring a range of economic and wider benefits to individuals and societies.”

Our Programmes

The Global Scholars Programme

Supporting international on-the-ground partners to create and deliver their own university access programmes. We share a blueprint – ‘The Scholars Programme’ – which is a programme that sees local PhD students deliver a course of tutorials based on their own research for local young people. This is shown to improve critical thinking, university readiness and motivation.

UK digital curriculum and IAG resources

Producing digital ‘Research-Based Curricula’ resources – subject coursebooks created by PhD researchers, based on their unique research. Resources are put into local UK schools to reach students, develop independent study, and expose them to university-style learning.

Researcher Development Programme

Training international and UK-based post-graduate students attending UK universities. Covering social impact and entrepreneurship, leadership, international excellence and employability, this programme creates a community of post-graduate researchers to work on our global initiatives and support cross­ cultural exchange for school students in the UK.

The Scholars Programme

Our programme blueprint harnesses the passion and expertise of post-graduate students at local universities around the world as tutors to young people during their education journey.

Post-graduate researchers are uniquely placed to provide this support as experts in their field with a strong academic background to support the development of other young learners.

By delivering university-style courses based on their research, PhD tutors can help young people develop their knowledge and instil the learning skills that boost exam attainment, including critical thinking and independent study.

This model in the UK has scaled to become the UK’s largest university access programme for 11-18 year olds. Impact from our programmes abroad shows strong statistically significant impact on young participants against 4 key competencies.
