APEX Universities Programme
Excell3’s Apex Universities Programme aims to support underrepresented groups of students to access Britain’s top Universities.
About the programme: The programme runs over four years starting with students in Year 10 and seeks to inspire confidence and equip them with the requisite knowledge and skills to make successful applications to the nation’s top universities.
The programme seeks to:
- Raise students’ aspirations, confidence and resilience to successfully apply and graduate from top universities.
- Provide academic master classes to help drive-up students’ attainment levels thereby improving their chances of securing places at the nation’s top universities (i.e. Russell Group Universities).
- Provide information, advice and guidance on practical aspects of the application process (e.g. The Admissions Process).
- Empower parents to support their child through the Higher Education process.
In conjunction with university staff and education professionals the Apex programme delivers specialised workshops on everything from “The Admissions Process” to “The University Admissions Interview”. The events are hosted at the nation’s top universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
The Apex programme also offers an accredited qualification for students and parents via completion of Excell3′s “Overcoming Barriers to Education” course. The parents’ edition provides advice and strategies for supporting one’s child into Higher Education.
Our GCSE Masterclasses are delivered by world renowned practitioners in their respective fields to include Professor Chris Imafidon adviser to Governments and major corporations (to include Apple).

Our results continue to be impressive with over 95% of our students gaining university places in 2015/2016 and a vast majority to Russell Group Universities.
