Alumnus George Hoare (DPhil Politics, 2006) set up Universify Education, a registered charity that exists to promote educational equality--specifically by widening access to highly selective universities like Oxford. They work with Year 10 students from non-selective state schools, giving them a week residential in Oxford during the summer, life coaching from current undergraduates during the year, and a refresher and revision booster at Easter. So far, they have been able to do this at no cost for students or schools (including travel costs), while also more than doubling the number of students they work with each year. The impact is analysed by measuring students' aspirations, confidence, and attainment (read more at https://universifyeducation.com/impact/). Universify is on the lookout for new trustees to help them expand and keep it free for students and schools. If you’re interested, have an idea or suggestion, or know someone who want to become a trustee, please email George Hoare at email@example.com.
