Summer Schools 2018

Our summer schools programme offers a range of exciting opportunities for Year 12 students to experience university life and prepare for future study in higher education.


What are they?

We offer a range of exciting Summer School opportunities for Year 12 students, who meet two of our Widening Participation criteria, to participate in that allow you to get ahead in preparation for your University applications, and are an ideal way to step into learning beyond school. We ensure that groups are kept small and that we bring together like-minded students with subject leaders and current students to immerse you in the subject throughout the week.

What will I do?

We offer you the chance to stay on our campus for a period of 3-4 days and immerse youself in university life. During the day you will complete academic sessions in your chosen subject and experience lectures, workshops, seminars and practicals. You will work with other students to develop a project and build on what you have learnt during periods of independent study.

In the evenings we provide a full social calendar to allow you to understand life away from your academic studies. We offer a film night, quiz and final disco and celebration to allow you to make new friends and enjoy everything university has to offer.
