We are the 93% Club! We are part of a nationwide network of clubs, all with the same aim. In a country where privately educated individuals are overrepresented in almost every field, the 93% Club Edinburgh aims to break down the divide and ensure that students from disadvantaged educational backgrounds at the University of Edinburgh can have the same positive experience both during and after university.
Our aims and values are:
To provide resources and to offer practical and professional advice and opportunities for state-educated students. We work on outreach initiatives with the wider Edinburgh community and assist in breaking down barriers for state-educated and particularly disadvantaged students in applying and getting into university. We are building a social community for state-educated students at Edinburgh, that includes social events and collaborations with students from all educational backgrounds to foster inclusivity. We are also a platform for state-educated students to share experiences, opinions, concerns and useful social and educational resources that challenge and recognise the politics that hinder social mobility both within and outside of the university. We practice intersectionality and understand that one’s experience of class and educational backgrounds can be heavily affected by the likes of race, ethnicity, gender, ability, and sexuality.
Our events, such as panel discussions and workshops, will be as accessible as possible, and open to students who may be excluded from the ‘UK state-educated’ umbrella but face other barriers.
