From the project website, brought to my attention by a Vietnamese graduate of Cambridge University: A UK-based charity established by international students at Cambridge and Oxford in 2007, the World University Project was founded to advance the understanding and development of higher education around the world. We do this primarily in the following ways:
- The University Lives Collection, which is creating a snapshot of higher education student experience in our times, using video contributions from students around the world.
- The World University Documentary, a documentary website which follows the views and experiences of university students and teachers worldwide, especially those in emerging economies. This project is on hold while we focus on the University Lives Collection.
- Charitable fundraising and strategic partnerships aimed at channeling resources and expertise toward higher education in the developing world.
