This part of the programme includes information and advice on:
The IAG provided for KS5 students (Year 12/Lower Sixth/FE College) on The Scholars Programme is a bespoke package designed to help you in your next steps toward university. We know that every KS5 student will have different questions, interests and things that are important to them when exploring their choices and making their decisions. Therefore, we have compiled a range of IAG resources for you to use and engage with as you see fit, to help you tailor the IAG you receive as part of the programme to your own priorities and needs.
At the Launch Event, you will set your academic, skill-related and personal development goals for your time on the programme, which we will revisit as part of the Celebration Event at the end (see below). There will also be a Q&A with undergraduate students and TSP alumni, giving you the opportunity to ask questions about university from those who are currently there.
The Snapshot Sessions are a library of pre-recorded information videos each between 10 and 20 minutes in length. These sessions have been created by Brilliant Club staff and our university partners. Each session focuses on a different topic – from studying abroad to student finance – and they are designed to be viewed (and re-viewed!) throughout your time on the programme and beyond.
We suggest you take a look at the Snapshot Sessions which are on topics that are of interest and importance to you, as well as to explore university opportunities you may not have considered before.
In total, there are 14 sessions split into two categories. The sessions in bold are those that make up the core sessions that you should ensure you take time to watch but we strongly recommend that you watch and engage with any of the sessions that interest you before your Celebration Event with one of our partner universities (see below), as they will help you identify and form any further questions you may have for university staff and students at that event.
There is space for you in your Course Handbook to make notes during the Snapshot Sessions. Follow the links below to watch the videos.
The Subject Cafés are live, hour-long online roundtables which will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions of university staff and undergraduates. These sessions are subject-specific, and will be organised according to the following subject streams:
