Normally summer schools take place on campus – this year COVID-19 has stopped that so we are going online instead. You'll be able to take part in the same sort of activites, but online. The programme will include lectures, informal discussions, careers and university information, study skills and fun online social events each evening.
We are pleased to be offering online summer schools in the following subjects:
- arts and design
- architecture and product design
- business and law
- computing and mathematics
- education and teaching
- engineering and construction
- geography, geology and environment
- humanities – e.g. history, English and philosophy
- sciences – e.g. chemistry, biology, biomed and pharmacy
- social sciences – e.g. sociology, psychology, criminology
There is no cost to take part in an online summer school.

Everyone who takes part will receive a certificate of attendance.
