Resources for Young People

We have developed free online resources to support young people making education and career choices, and bust some of the myths around higher education and student finance.

Bright Knowledge

Whether trying to find out about certain careers and courses, or just looking for inspiration about what to do next, young people have to make sense of an overwhelming amount of confusing and sometimes contradictory information.

Our Bright Knowledge library makes it easy to find information they can trust.

Completely impartial and up-to-date, Bright Knowledge features articles covering everything young people need to know about education, careers and student life, written in easily accessible language. Alongside providing a trusted source of information for young people searching online, Bright Knowledge can also be used by teachers and careers advisors to support young people.

The Student Calculator developed by Brightside is now owned and operated by Young Enterprise and Young Money.
