A Level Bootcamp

A-level bootcamp

About the programme

The University of Warwick is committed to working with young people to maximise their academic potential. We are offering Year 13 students on our access programmes and predicted to achieve between A* to C grades the opportunity to participate in a free three day A Level Revision Bootcamp during the Easter holidays. We have a very limited amount of places available for students in the Midlands who are not participating in any of our access programmes, but who meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.

Participants will learn, revise and study one subject area intensively and we aim to provide a packed timetable, which will be constructive, valuable and enjoyable. Each day will be hosted at the University of Warwick, but sessions will be delivered by qualified teachers with vast experience in their subject areas.

The bootcamp is non-residential and will take place on The University of Warwick's campus. Dates and application details for 2023 will be confirmed at the start of 2023.
