What to expect in the daytime
You'll take part in a programme of workshops and academic sessions in the subject you’ve chosen. Some you will have considered, and some might be completely new to you. Depending on your chosen subject, you might visit a gallery, build something in our engineering labs, visit the local hospital, test yourself in our sports science labs or take part in a philosophical debate – we promise you won’t get bored!
What to expect in the evenings
In the evenings you’ll get to try out what it’s like living in ‘halls’ – you’ll have your own bedroom, in a flat with 6–8 other students also on the summer school, and a shared living room/kitchen.
There will be social activities each evening, for example, beach volleyball, bowling and BBQs.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! All summer schools are completely free to take part in and include accommodation, meals, and the costs of any trips you take part in.
Who can attend?
Applications from all students will be considered, however, places are limited so we will give priority to students in year 12 who meet our widening participation criteria.
What's the difference between non-residential and residential summer schools?
The main difference is that at non-residential summer schools you'll make your own way to and from campus each day, and at residential summer schools you'll stay on campus for four days, staying overnight in university halls of residence.
