Some of the fun we had at the Year 12 Summer School 2016....
Why come to our Summer School?
Our Experience Warwick Year 12 residential summer school aims to provide gifted students the chance to explore what it would be like to study at a University. Students will attend lectures and seminars on a number of subjects, as well as taking part in group research sessions. We will offer information and advice on how to apply to University, as well as try to break down any barriers that these students may be facing when thinking about applying. Students will get a taste of University life, with a good balance of academic content and social activities, taking advantage of the campus facilities.

"When I got there I made two friends pretty much instantly and then developed a whole squad by the end of it! Everyone was after the same thing and every part of it was extremely fun!"

"I had a fantastic time and met some incredible people. The lectures I attended helped me understand what life at university would be like and the social activities were exciting and fun. The Ambassadors did a great job in making me feel at ease and answered all the questions I had regarding University."
