Information for students

  • Our free summer school gives you the opportunity to meet academics, current students and to explore the university and its facilities. And you will hopefully also enjoy yourself and make new friends!  

  • Discover a university course before going to university.

    Get a better understanding of what and how you would learn at university.

    Get to know academics and students and a chance to explore the university life.

    Receive support during university applications and when starting out at university.

    Summer schools are a fantastic way of preparing for application to university. You can get to know a subject and you will be taught by academics. You also get what university learning and life is like and you get to life in student halls.
