Unequal access to education leads to wider inequalities, including poverty, lower social mobility and the impoverishment of communities.

Across developing and developed countries, a young person’s chances of progressing to university and completing an undergraduate education are significantly influenced by socio-economic background.

We focus on access to university because higher education acts as a powerful mechanism for social mobility. A university education can transform economic and social life outcomes for young people from under-served backgrounds.

“By 2030, countries should provide equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university”
