6th November 2019

We're working away at another fantastic set of Summer School programmes for Summer 2020 - stay tuned for more information!

Who can apply?
Though our applications won't open until the new year, information on our eligibility criteria can be found in our application guidance.

We want to make information about university accessible to as many young people as possible, but especially those who might have little knowledge of university or are from a group where few people attend university. We measure this through information provided in the application form and use it to make our decision about who gets a place when the events are oversubscribed.

Got questions?
No problem - ask away. No question is too big or too small. Our friendly team can be reached on phone or email: 01603 591521 / ueasummerschools@uea.ac.uk

THE WHAT, WHERE AND WHEN
Summer Schools are residential events hosted at UEA for young people from the local area. They're totally free to attend (including accommodation, travel, food and activities) and give young people a feel for life at university. 
We'll be running four summer schools for various ages in August - scroll down to see information for young people, teachers and parents.

2020 summer school dates:

  • Year 9 students - 19-20 August
  • Year 10 students - 5-7 August
  • Experience Uni (specifically for students aged 14-18 with experience of living in local authority care) - 18-19 August

ARE YOU A YOUNG PERSON?
Want to know what life is like at university? Our free summer schools are the perfect way to find out.

At a summer school you'll get a chance to: 

  • Spend a night or two in student accommodation - you'll get your own room, with an en-suite bathroom, in a real student flat!
  • Meet lots of current university students  - they'll be with you all the time and you'll get to know loads about them. Ask them any questions you have, at any time, about any topic..what's good, bad, interesting, exciting, boring about university - ask them anything! 
  • Try out different subjects you could study at university - you might discover a subject you didn't even know existed
  • Ask questions and find out exactly what you should expect from higher education - it's your chance to get the low-down on all things university; student life, finance, studying, support, accommodation...
  • Have fun! You'll get to try new things and make new friends.
