K+ is King’s College London’s widening participation project targeting high-achieving Year 12 pupils in the Greater London area whose parents did not attend university. K+ currently has over 700 students taking part in an 18 month programme of activities including subject taster sessions, study skills workshops and coaching on personal statements and student finance, all supported by their own online undergraduate mentor. Brightside’s web platform also allows students to form their own social network through which they can support each other as they progress into higher education.
