This year the Year 12 Summer School dates are Tuesday 10th to Saturday 14th July 2018.
Our Year 12 Summer School 2017 gave sixty three students based around the UK the opportunity to experience what it is like to study at a top research university. They attended a varied programme of academic sessions and took part in a group research project with the aim of solving a world challenge. The panel of academics was impressed by the groups' analytical and presentation skills.
This year, the participants also tried a new activity during our societies tasters, which included bubble football, climbing and ukulele to name only a few… We would like to thank all of the participants for coming to our campus!
Please note,the academic programme for the 2018 summer school is yet to finalised. There will be a variety of subjects and these could include Economics, History, Law, Politics, Life Sciences, Philosophy, Engineering and many more.
