The Insight2Uni e-mentoring programme is a transformational programme aimed at high potential Black-heritage A-level students.

Purposeful mentoring

Attending a top-tier university is a common aspiration.  But hampered by self-doubt and lacking a roadmap, many Black-heritage pupils fail to realise their dream. 

We work with pupils from the Spring term of Year 12 to help them overcome these barriers. Over 10 monthly sessions they are provided with a structured programme of support from relatable mentors.

Aspirational mentors

Our mentors are current Black-heritage students from leading universities who are uniquely positioned to be a trusted voice, offering authentic guidance and invaluable insights.  With their support, mentees fulfil their potential.

Positive outcomes

Our mentees:

  • make informed university choices

  • are supported to submit high quality applications

  • grow in confidence about applying to top 1/3 ranked universities

Mentors receive training and support throughout the year ensuring an enriching experience for them and the delivery of a high quality, impactful offering for our mentees.


We know that time is precious so our mentoring sessions take place using video-conferencing links.  This provides the flexibility to easily fit the sessions around existing study commitments.

It was great to help a young student answer questions that took me years to find out.
