What is Shine?

The Shine Programme is run under the auspices of The University of York and aims to support pupils from schools across Yorkshire, the Humber and North East to reach their full potential. Shine is open to pupils in Year 6 to 11 who have been identified by their school as being high achieving and are from a group that is currently under-represented at university.

By working with young people under 16, Shine aims to inspire, motivate and encourage pupils to achieve academic success and raise their aspirations towards higher education.
