Students graduate from Oxford University Wadham College!

Students in year 9 and 10 are celebrating success as they graduate from The Brilliant Club programme with a graduation ceremony at Wadham College, Oxford University. 

Students were encouraged to think and work independently across seven tutorials with a subject expert PhD researcher. During the programme, they learnt about an individual topic  and then completed a challenging final thesis-style essay which was given a university-level grade.By bringing together two communities – PhD researchers and students – who might otherwise never interact with each other, our students experienced studying innovative and inspiring topics that very few people have ever covered.

Susie Whigham, Chief Programmes and Communities Officer at The Brilliant Club, congratulated the pupils on their achievements: “Congratulations to these outstanding students as they graduate from The Scholars Programme. They join a community of over 90,000 young people who have taken part in The Brilliant Club since 2011. “Completing their final assignments was no doubt challenging, but it has shown that these students have a passion for learning and the knowledge to produce university-style work already. I hope they use these new skills throughout their education and continue their fantastic work.”

We're incredibly proud of the students who were an absolute credit to themselves, their families and us! Thank you to Mr D-A and Ms McD for supporting with the trip. You're all amazing!
