The Brilliant Club
 
 
The Brilliant Club (a university access charity who work with schools) have made available a range of sessions to view on university information, advice and guidance, which are suitable for pupils from age 10-18 interested in learning more about university and the application process.
 
There are also some university masterclasses on a variety of subjects for students to listen to and experience what university learning might be like. For our students who are looking for a challenge you might also like to scroll to the bottom of this page, where a range of Arts and Humanities and STEM workbooks that pupils can use for independent learning have been uploaded. These workbooks have been created and generously shared by teachers on the Researchers in Schools Programme through the Brilliant Club. There are also some excellent YouTube videos.
