Uniconnect is a new site that aims to help prospective university students make the right choices about university, college and course.
From an access perspective, the expense of travelling to Open Days can act as a barrier to information for a lot of prospective applicants from lower socio-economic backgrounds. They see their platform as a way for students from all backgrounds and geographies to access reliable and useful, first-hand information from current students about all aspects of University life.
For their platform to work properly, they need as many current students as possible signed up as mentors. The students will be paid £20/hour to give advice sessions.
More information can be found on their website and facebook page below:
