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

The Scholars Programme is designed to emulate the learning that students experience at highly-selective universities.

"We recruit, train and place doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials, which are supplemented by two university trips."

PHD students work with state schools on coaching students through high level academic writing. Through a combination of university trips, in-school tutorials and online resources, they support pupils aged 10-18 to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress.
