Warwick’s Easter school is a two night/three day residential university experience for year 12 students who are autistic and who want to explore the possibility of going to university.
Going to university is a big step for all young people, but it can be especially daunting for autistic students. The Easter School offers the opportunity for year 12 students to stay for two nights in mixed halls of residence at the University of Warwick and get a taste of what university life might be like. During the two night/three day stay attendees experiences will include the following:
- Attending lectures
- Staying in halls
- Buying and cooking a meal for themselves
- Visiting and using the sports facilities
- Eating in campus food retail outlets
Whilst here, attendees will also have the opportunity to meet current autistic Warwick students, get some help with choosing a university and degree and meet staff from around the university who can help support them to manage themselves at university.
Who can apply?
Autistic students currently studying at Key stage 5 in the local area who are in year 12 and who want to explore the possibility of going to university. Whilst we are aware this could be a challenging experience, attendees should have a willingness to engage with the easter school activities.
