Sutton Trust Summer School

Each year, the Admissions team organises a free week-long residential summer school intended for those studying anywhere in the UK who still have a year to complete at school. The aim is to demystify elite universities and to equip students with the knowledge and insight to make high-quality applications to top universities.

Applications for the 2020 summer school are now closed.

During the week, participants take part in a varied programme of academic and social activities designed to give insight into what university study would be like. Students will live in a university hall of residence and attend academic sessions in two subject areas of their choice. Sessions are also held on the UCAS application process, personal statements and student finance to ensure advice and guidance are given on all aspects of the journey to university.

Sutton Trust Summer Schools are free of charge. Not only is your place free, but we will also pay for your transport, accommodation, food and all activities and resources. There really is no cost to attend.
