Explore UCL Year 11 Summer School
The Year 11 Summer School will run from 20-24 July 2015
Explore UCL is your chance to find out more about studying at university. It’s a non-residential, week-long Summer School programme for Year 11 students. We aim to give you a real taste of university life.
If you enjoy learning about different subjects, sharing and developing your ideas with others, and are looking for a challenging but fun experience that will give you an idea of what university may have to offer you, then Explore UCL this summer.
We ask that students are on track to achieve at least five A/A* at GCSE and are committed to participating in all of the activities of the summer school. Students must be attending a state school and priority will be given to pupils who meet one or more of the following the following criteria:
- Have no family history of Higher Education (e.g. your parents didn’t go to university)
- Come from neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education
- Are in local authority care
- Parents from non-professional occupations
- Are or have been eligible for free school meals within the past five years
- Attending a school where a high proportion of students are in receipt of free school meals
- The Year 11 Summer School will run from 20th - 24th July 2015
- Lunch, refreshments and a travel card will be provided
- The Summer School is free of charge
Applications are currently closed. We are working on selection and hope to notify successful applicants by 27th March 2015.
