EXPANDING ACCESSIBILITY TO UNIVERSITY EDUCATION IRRESPECTIVE OF GENDER, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS AND COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
DEMOCRATISING UNIVERSITY ACCESS
Around the world, 142 million youth between the ages of 15-17 are not in school due to factors such as military conflict, poverty, and cultural exclusion.
As such, university education remains structurally inaccessible to these teenagers from unprivileged backgrounds.
Our mission? To remedy this problem by expanding accessibility to university education across national borders.
Universities Without Borders is a non-profit organisation that was founded with the overarching goal of expanding accessibility to university education irrespective of gender, socio-economic status and country of origin.
To achieve this, we connect with students who have been structurally excluded from university and provide free undergraduate level learning resources in a broad range of subjects across STEM, humanities and the arts. By doing this, we hope to democratise the education that has historically only been accessible to the privileged few.
We also partner with local schools, NGOs, and communities in developing countries to help teenagers who are struggling to enter university education.
We offer partnership opportunities with schools, NGOs, and communities in developing countries.
We provide volunteer tutoring staff, free learning resources and application advice for disadvantaged students looking to enter university.
For disadvantaged students, we provide free university-level self-study learning resources in a range of subjects across STEM, humanities and the arts.
We also provide application advice for disadvantaged students looking to enter university.
