The Sutton Trust has re-opened its Summer Schools programme for applications.
The Summer Schools programme provides students from non-privileged backgrounds with an opportunity to taste student life. During previous application rounds, the programme has provided an opportunity to over 1700 students to experience student life at the universities of Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Imperial, King’s College, Nottingham, St Andrews, and UCL.
All expenses are met by the Trust and participating universities.
To apply, applicants must be in Year 12 or equivalent (e.g. S5 in Scotland) and have always attended a state school or college. In addition, applicants need to come from neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education or high levels of socio economic deprivation.
Applications for the 2018 programme are now open; students who meet the selection criteria may register an interest by completing the online survey via the link on the website. The application deadline is 17.00 on Thursday, 15th March 2018.
