We mobilise the PhD community to support students who are less advantaged to access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.
Between 2021 and 2026, we will work with 100,000 students across the UK to help them to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to access the most competitive universities. We estimate that this will result in 30,000 of these young people progressing to a competitive university. By the end of the decade, one in ten state school students at the most competitive universities will be a graduate of The Brilliant Club’s Scholars Programme. We will also support 11,000 students from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed once they enter universities. Our access and success goals are underpinned by three enablers; communities, capabilities and consultancy.
Every member of The Brilliant Club contributes to the success of our strategy. We hope that you’ll consider joining us, as we work to create a fairer society where no child’s education is limited by their background.
