The Brilliant Club – The Scholars Programme

Event Fallback Image

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.

Through The Scholars Programme we provide pupils with the intellectual and physical experience of University life. Pupils take part in a University-style module, run by a researcher, focusing on their area of expertise. In school tutorials are supported by two trips to our highly selective university partner institutions. They then complete a challenging final assignment as a culmination of their work on the programme, pitched a key stage above their current level.
