Our Mission

Our mission is to work in partnership across the education sector with students, teachers, families, communities and businesses to widen access and participation at third-level of under-represented groups.

What we do

We offer a range of access programmes for people with the enthusiasm, motivation and ability to succeed at third-level. We engage with communities and schools in low progression areas to encourage a positive mindset and support real steps towards going to University. Our programmes range from primary school students right through to postgraduates. For more information please view our 2020 Strategic Plan (PDF).
