Universities Summer School

For over 30 years Eton College has run a residential summer school for Year 12 (Lower Sixth) students from state schools planning to apply to top universities in the UK and overseas. The Summer School is not about improving A-level grades but is designed to help students with their university applications, through an exciting and challenging ten days of study. Applicants chose a subject and we 

provide dynamic teaching and, more importantly, the company of like-minded students from all over the country to work and socialise with.

This residential course at Eton has a packed timetable with lessons, study time, sporting and cultural opportunities. Visiting university lecturers come to teach and discuss entry procedures. Our aim is to give help students make a persuasive application to the universities of their choice and many go on to Oxford or Cambridge and other Russell Group universities.

The Universities Summer School is open to all students regardless of means. The College subsidises the cost of the course and it can be reduced or in some cases waived, depending upon financial circumstances.

We look forward to hearing from Year 12 students in state education in the UK. (The Universities Summer School is not available to overseas students.) You need to apply by 1st March of the year you would like to join the course. We look forward to hearing from you!
