The Brilliant Club is a charity that works across the UK, supporting less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities, and to succeed when they get there.

1 in 50 of the least advantaged students enter the most competitive universities, compared to1 in 4 of the most advantaged. Disadvantaged students are therefore 18x more likely to miss out on life-changing higher education. This disadvantage doesn’t disappear when they enter university. Disadvantaged students are 3x more likely to miss out on a 1st or 2:1 grade at university. This affects an individual beyond their time at university and impacts society as a whole.

In response, The Brilliant Club mobilises the PhD community to support students who are less advantaged to access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.
