The Brilliant Club

We support less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities, and succeed when they get there.

Currently, young people from the least advantaged backgrounds have a 2 in 100 chance of going to the most competitive universities, compared with 28 in 100 for the most advantaged (UCAS Multiple Equality Measure).

The Scholars Programme, our flagship programme, helps young people from less advantaged backgrounds to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to secure a place at a competitive university. Students on The Scholars Programme take part in challenging courses on subjects beyond the curriculum, which are taught by a passionate PhD tutor.

We have ambitious 5-year targets of supporting 100,000 state school students on our access programmes, including The Scholars Programme, as well as 10,000 undergraduates to transition and succeed at their new university.
