Impetus-PEF’s support has been instrumental in getting IntoUniversity to where it is today.

– Rachel Carr, CEO, IntoUniversity

The need: Only 24 per cent of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds go to university, compared to 41 per cent of their better-off peers. This means that 14,000 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 ten-year partnership, we’ve helped IntoUniversity grow from a standalone project in west London serving 750 young people, to a national network of 22 centres in seven cities, serving over 29,000 young people. In 2016, 75 per cent of IntoUniversity students got a place at university compared to 39 per cent previously.
