The Black Excellence Network is a community of aspirational individuals. We desire to increase the participation of black students in top universities and apprenticeships in the UK and outside. We also aim to aid the personal development of our students and provide opportunities such as work experience and extracurricular activities which will allow for the personal growth of everyone in our community. 

What We Offer:

We offer a quality mentorship scheme, which will provide many black students with specialist advice and guidance on a wide range of subject courses and our service will be tailored to each mentee individually.

We offer high-class consulting services, in which we provide our members with a wide range of professional and academic guidance. This ranges from personal statement assistance to internship application guidance.

We offer an extensive opportunity listing which details potential opportunities that will educate and upskill all the members of our network. This listing also includes exclusive opportunities for those in BEN. 

We offer a space where black individuals can network and exchange value between each other in order to strengthen their community and promote unity. We will use our tailored events and exclusive forum to achieve this.
