Our mentorship programme helps applicants from disfavorable backgrounds to reach top universities.
“My Project Access mentor supported and guided me through every step of the application process, from reviewing my personal statement to helping me prepare for the daunting interviews. Thank you Liang Kun for your tireless and patience guidance throughout my application process. I would not have been able to get the offer without your help and support!”
“My mentor is a very positive person. Our work on my application required a lot of time, commitment and self-criticism. Not only was he exceptional in the help he provided, but he also always did it with a smile on his face. I consider him both a great mathematician and a wonderful person. He has given me an immeasurable amount of motivation to work on my dreams. If everyone had a mentor like mine, the world would be a better place.”
"I could instantly click with my mentor due to the fact that we had the same Pakistani background. He knew a lot about university applications and was able correct details in my personal statement that I would never have thought about myself. Thank you for helping me get into LSE!"
"My mentor, Dorota, organized several mock interviews and shared her own experience with me. She also held an interview with another mentee and me, which was very useful too. I felt confident and well prepared during my real interview thanks to her help."
"My mentor made the idea of studying abroad less abstract. I realised that it was possible if I just worked hard for it. She also gave me the support that I needed to believe in my abilities, and helped me with the application process whenever I had questions."
"My mentor gave me a lot of support, and was the biggest lifesaver in the application process. He was truly an excellent mentor. He always found time for replying to my emails, answering my questions and reading my essays. I find his support a crucial factor of my application success."
