What is The Brilliant Club?
The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity working in collaboration with schools and universities across the UK. The charity exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its expertise in state schools. The charity was established in 2011, we have grown to partner with over 800 schools, supporting over 15,000 pupils in 2019 – 20 through our existing programmes.
