Subilo and The Access Project

Subilo's story

We spoke to Subilo, 19, about her experiences with The Access Project, one of our charity partners

I feel like without help from my tutor every week, I would have only ever achieved a surface level understanding of the subject [economics]. She helped me to have a deeper understanding of it.

It's not always easy to go to your teacher, there are so many other people in class, so having someone to explain and answer questions one on one was so helpful. 

The other side of support from The Access Project was amazing as well - with the application process, my personal statement, researching the uni - I don't know what I would have done without them. 

I'm now in my second year at London School of Economics studying international social policy and economics. It was a good feeling arriving, I couldn't believe I'd got here. 

The Access Project works with high-potential students from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing tutoring and intensive support including mentoring, practice interviews and networking, to help them get into top universities.
