The Brilliant Club exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds progressing to highly selective universities. They do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools. In addition to University of Bath PhD researchers running projects in schools we also host launch and graduation events on the University campus.
Brightside support students to make confident and informed decisions about their future through a programme of mentoring.
IntoUniversity centres help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply to university or take a different path. The University of Bath, sponsors the Weston-Super-Mare centre and the Hammersmith centre and along with Bristol and Exeter universities, sponsor the IntoUniversity centre in south Bristol.
We work in partnership with the Nuffield Foundation, a non-profit organisation providing 4-week and 6-week research placements in universities and industries in the South West. These research placements are for students in their first year of a Post-16 STEM course, and take place during the school or college summer holidays.
