Year 12 residentials

Immerse yourself in university studies, and university life, with our summer residentials. Want to try activities in your subject area? Get help with your UCAS application? These residentials for Year 12 and Year 1 college students mean you’ll get to live, study and socialise on campus for four days this summer.

Year 12 residential participants enjoy a social activity on campus.

You’ll have lots of questions before deciding where to study. What will the teaching be like? Will I know what to do? Do I want to live on campus? What if I don’t know anyone?

A summer residential gives you a hands on experience of studying topics within a subject area you love, the chance to meet people exactly like you, who probably also have the same questions but are coming at them from a whole range of different backgrounds and experiences.

You will focus on this subject during a series of academic workshops, meaning you’ll get to know exactly what studying a degree in your preferred subject area would be like.

What you’ll do

During the four days on campus you will:

  • meet other students who are interested in joining a degree in your subject area
  • work with our student guides
  • receive advice on completing your UCAS application
  • receive an induction in using the University library and IT facilities on campus

When the working day is over, we’ll have a variety of social activities planned and you’ll also discover what our accommodation is like, by staying in your own room in our halls of residence.

We’ll let you know more details about arrangements when you book, but please note we are not able to cover the cost of travel to and from the summer residentials.

Dates and subjects

Our summer 2023 residentials are expected to take place in late July/early August 2023.

Further details will be published here as soon as they have been confirmed.
