What are you doing in the holidays?

Explore university with UEA's free residential Summer Schools.

We believe that attending university is the most important and possibly the most enjoyable thing you can do after school. If you haven't already decided to pursue a degree, maybe we can help to persuade you that this could be the way forward for you. Attend one of our Summer Schools and see for yourself.

Who is it for?

Summer Schools are aimed at year 9, 10 & 11 students who would like to find out more about going to university. It's never too early to start thinking about your options after school.

Places are only open to students from schools in Norfolk and Suffolk. Priority will be given to students who come from communities with little experience or tradition of going to university. For example:

  • You are/were in care or;
  • You're are a young carer or;
  • You have a disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty or;
  • Not many people from your school or where you live go to university or;
  • You would be eligible for the full living cost loan amount if you went on to university (household income is under £25,000).

Looked after children

Alongside our year 9, 10 and 11 summer school offering, we also have a fantastic opportunity for looked after children and recent care leaves aged 14-18.

The Experience Uni event will be held on 14-15 August 2018. Fulld details and application information is available on our looked after children landing page.
