Summer Schools provide a fantastic opportunity to experience higher education over several days, developing knowledge of a chosen subject area and gaining essential skills to be a successful university student.
Why attend a pre-16 Summer School?
Our Pre-16 (Year 10 & 11) Healthcare Summer School is on 26th-17th July. Students will take part in a variety of sessions led by both healthcare professionals and student mentors.
