Brilliant Club

  • CalendarAvailable on request
  • Clock outlineA full day

The Brilliant Club recruits, trains and places PhD students in schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials, which are supplemented by two university trips.

The aim is to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities.

At Cardiff University, we host the launch and graduation events on behalf of the Brilliant Club for South East Wales. During the academic year, we have clubs for pupils in key stage two, three and four.

Find out more about The Brilliant Club which operates across the whole of the UK.
