Summer Schools


About the summer schools

Our Summer Schools offer participants a varied insight into life at a research intensive and competitive university. These include staying in our halls of residence, attending academic sessions and experiencing the social and sport facilities on our campus. Participants will also be able to interact with our Ambassadors who are current students at the University.

The University of Warwick Outreach team have been holding Summer Schools for UK students from non-traditional backgrounds since 2012. Last year we welcomed over four hundred students aged between 15 and 18 years old on to our campus.

Warwick Summer Schools take place during July and August; applications for all 2020 Summer Schools will open in January.
