Get matched with a mentor

We’ll connect you with your perfect mentor on our platform and organise your first mentoring session. We’ll provide guidance along the way so you can get the most out of your sessions.

Your questions.

Our baseline eligibility criteria is that you must attend a UK state school and currently be in Year 12/13 (S4/S5 in Scotland, or Yr13/14 in Northern Ireland). Above and beyond this, we use contextual recruitment practices to put the academic performance of applicants in its full context. So if you attend an underperforming school in a low-income area, your academic performance will be judged in this context. Either way, it only takes 60 seconds to apply, and 50% of applicants are successful in winning a Zero Gravity place!

We believe the brightest minds should know no bounds. We're a social enterprise that exclusively supports state school students from areas of the UK where reaching a top university is far from guaranteed. We're funded through partnerships with leading organisations that help keep our mentoring free for our students.

You can apply to Zero Gravity all year round. If you're in Year 12 (S4), our mentoring kicks off in July and runs right the way through your final year of school. But don't worry if you've only just found us - we match Year 13 (S5) students throughout the academic year!

Our data shows that weekly mentoring sessions significantly boost students' chances of reaching top universities. Students who join Zero Gravity must commit to weekly mentoring sessions to get the most out of the opportunity. In other words, you'll only get out what you put in!

Every year we fund thousands of pounds of scholarships for our most dedicated students to support their ambitions through university and beyond. In August, we select the students who've completed the most mentoring sessions on our platform and who our data suggests have overcome the most significant challenges to secure a top university place.
