IntoUniversity & Impetus
Impetus’ support has been instrumental in getting IntoUniversity to where it is today.
– Rachel Carr, CEO, IntoUniversity
The need: Only 26% of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds go to university, compared to 43% of their better-off peers. This means that 15,000 young people miss out on the opportunity each year.
Our charity partner: IntoUniversity runs centres where disadvantaged young people receive support to raise their attainment and aspiration, and get the necessary information, advice and guidance to get in to university.
Our impact: During our 11-year partnership, we’ve helped IntoUniversity grow from one centre in west London serving 850 young people, to a national network of 27 centres across the country, serving over 35,000 young people. In 2017, 74% of IntoUniversity students got a place at university compared to 38% nationally.
