Who doesn't love a pub quiz? Lockdown doesn't mean that this has to stop! Get your thinking caps on for IntoUniversity's very first virtual quiz, which will be livestreamed at 8pm on Wednesday 29th April! Take part individually or in a team of up to five people for your chance to win a coveted, personalised IntoUniversity mug! 

The quiz is now live on our Youtube Channel, which you can find here!

Please find the answer form here - only one person in your team needs to fill out the answers. If you would like to participate as part of a team who are not in the same household, you are welcome to! You can set up a Zoom call/video call/Facetime/Whatsapp group for your team on a separate device.

If you can't make it this evening, there's no need to worry! A recording of the quiz will be available to watch until Tuesday 5 May, after which will be announcing the winner!

Despite the country being in lockdown and necessitating the closure of our centres, IntoUniversity is still very much open: our staff are providing vital remote support to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds across the country. When the crisis has passed, we believe that our services will be needed more than ever. Disadvantaged young people are likely to have fallen behind their peers. In order to continue providing this essential support, we need crucial funds.Therefore, we are suggesting a donation of £5 per person - the cost of a pint (in London!).

IntoUniversity provides local learning centres in disadvantaged communities around the UK, supporting young people from the least privileged families to gain a university place or another chosen aspiration. IntoUniversity currently operates 31 centres or equivalents in 13 locations in England, with plans to launch further centres over the coming years. We run an innovative and long-term programme of after-school academic support, tailored educational/training days for primary and secondary school students, individual mentoring by university students and corporate employees, university application guidance and assistance with critical work experience. In the 2018/19 academic year, IntoUniversity supported over 42,000 children and young people across its network of centres.

IntoUniversity is a growing education charity with a strong track record of working with schools, universities and corporate partners to inspire young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their potential. Young people from the UK’s most disadvantaged postcodes (zip codes) are four times less likely to go to university than those in more advantaged areas. This makes it harder for these young people to succeed in a competitive job market. The long-term effects can be felt across society, as communities with low education and employment prospects become increasingly marginalised. By raising aspirations, we aim to tackle this issue, giving our students a better chance at a brighter future.
