Sutton Trust Summer School 30 June to 5 July 2019.

Only 1 month left to make an application!

The Sutton Trust Summer School at the University of St Andrews is held each year in order to give pupils in S5 the chance to experience a week in the life of a university student. It has been proved that this experience, aimed at pupils who fulfil most of the criteria set out in the information material, is of great benefit when applying to competitive universities.

The residential week includes study within academic areas of interest, social activities and advice on UCAS related topics. The week is free of charge and pupils are only required to bring spending money for their personal use.

Applications are now open and I would encourage your pupils to apply early. Further information can be found online at 

https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/access/projects/sutton-trust/ and https://summerschools.suttontrust.com/

Applications close on 28 February 2019.

If you have any questions about the Sutton Trust Summer School or any of our other Outreach programmes then please do not hesitate to contact us by email schools.access@st-andrews.ac.uk or by calling 01334 462346.
