Taste of University – Year 12 Residential Summer School

Our residential summer school takes place in Chester from 12th to 15th July 2022 and is designed specifically for students who are in Year 12, or those studying the first year of a Level 3 qualification in college to immerse themselves in university life. 

Across four days and three nights, students will explore campus life, experience academic taster lectures, learn about the university application process, and develop key skills to make informed decisions.  All meals, accommodation and activities are included free of charge to all attendees. All students are welcome, but if the event is over-subscribed, we will prioritise applications from students who are from groups currently under-represented at university.

Full details and an application form are available at the following webpage:

Theology and Religious Studies Webinars

Academics from the University’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies are back with a third series of Theology & Religious Studies webinars. Taking place online every Tuesday from 3rd May to 12th July,  expert lecturers will share their knowledge and engage with topics and issues from the A Level Religious Studies syllabus in short, sharp online sessions. A level students and teachers are especially welcome, but also GCSE and Key Stage 3, and indeed anyone!
