Improving access to higher education and creating opportunities of growth for learners from marginalised communities in India.
OPP x Project EduAccess
Many Pakistan learners, in particular those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have limited access to quality higher education in universities abroad due to information and dispositional barriers. Moreover, many who are able to secure admission offers are ultimately unable to take up their place due to financial constraints. This not only leads to the underrepresentation of Pakistani learners in universities abroad, but also denies these learners access to better opportunities and resources.
In a modest attempt to address this problem, the Oxford Pakistan Programme and Project EduAccess are partnering in 2023 to launch joint initiatives aimed at supporting Pakistani learners.
Our 2022-23 Mentorship Programme focuses on learners from marginalised communities in India. As such, we have identified eight underrepresented learner groups in India that we will prioritise in this application cycle.
