Widening educational support in the UK

our access programme

Admissions Tutors is committed to providing tuition and university application support to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. The aim being to help those who otherwise would not have the financial resources to obtain private tuition receive the extra educational support that that we offer as an organisation.

Our access programme works by pairing students with tutors, whom over the course of a number of sessions will help them prepare for a certain goal, whether that be achieving their desired grades in exams, helping them with their personal statement, or coaching them in preparation for a university interview. Rather than simply focussing on teaching subject specific knowledge, the programme is also centred around mentorship, where tutors will help students develop a broader set of skills which will help them achieve longterm educational success even after the programme has ended. 

The access programme is completely free to eligible students and is in most cases is funded by Admissions Tutors. 

The general criteria for student eligibility for the programme is as follows:

  • Receive free school meals or have a household income of less than £21,000

  • Attend a non fee-paying state school in the UK

  • Be predicted to or have achieved predominantly top grades (8s or 9s) at GCSEs

  • Have a written letter or recommendation stating the student’s potential

  • Be a UK resident

We primarily recruit students into our access programme by working with schools, however we do take on students through other arrangements. For more information, please email info@admissionstutors.com
