This summer, in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford, Study Higher will be running a free residential summer school for target students* in Year 12 from Tuesday 1 - Thursday 3 August 2017.

Students in attendance will take part in a free, fun, and interactive 3 day/2 night residential focussing on subject areas related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).


What will the students gain from this opportunity?

  • Experience university life by staying in student accommodation.
  • Meet current undergraduate students to have a first-hand insight into HE.
  • Take part in a range of activities at both Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford related to STEM subjects as well as student life.
  • Participate in external trips and other activities designed to enhance their knowledge of the experience of being a university student.  

Through socialising, studying and gaining knowledge, we aim to ensure that participants leave the summer school with a clearer understanding of their options within Higher Education and will be inspired to succeed in pursuing the right option for them.
