For 2022, Eton College will be running the Eton Summer University Preparation Courses (ESUPC), a non-residential cohort of modular subject-based courses.

The subject programmes are enriching, intellectual, exciting and full of opportunities to gain new skills and exchange ideas together with like-minded young people.

The courses are not about improving A Level grades, but are designed to provide a lively and challenging period of study. You choose a subject you would like to engage with further; we provide dynamic teaching and, more importantly, the company of like-minded students from all over the country with whom to work and socialise.
