Behavioural and Social Science Summer School
Do you have students that are interested in Behavioural and Social Science courses, but they’re not sure if they’ll meet the entry requirements? Our New Summer School may help them to gain a place.
Students who don’t have the standard entry qualifications, but have academic skills, experience and dedication, may be offered an opportunity to attend our Summer School as a stepping-stone onto an undergraduate course. The Summer School is a short supportive programme, held one day a week over 6 weeks in the summer, where they’ll be introduced to academic subject content and academic skills, and then assessed through an individual written assignment.
They’ll need to apply to their chosen undergraduate course through UCAS. Our admissions teams may then refer them to the Summer School, if they do not meet our normal UCAS eligibility criteria but demonstrate through their personal statement that they have the interest, commitment and potential to do well. If they successfully pass the Summer School, they’ll be given an offer on the course they applied for.
