What is Brilliant Club?

We partner with The Brilliant Club, a charity that seeks to mobilise the PhD community to engage with state schools and support talented pupils from under-represented backgrounds to progress to highly-selective universities.

The University of Leeds main collaboration with The Brilliant Club is via the Scholars Programme. This innovative widening participation initiative employs doctoral and post-doctoral researchers on a part-time basis to deliver programmes of academic enrichment to small groups of pupils. Through a combination of university trips, in-school tutorials and online resources, it supports pupils aged 10-18 to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities.

How to apply

The Brilliant Club works with state schools. All applications and enquiries should be directed to The Brilliant Club directly via their website.
