For 2023, 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.
As well as subject specific lessons, students will also attend a variety of University Application Assistance seminars (pictured above). These will cover a range of topics such as personal statement writing, undergraduate student Q&A, student finance, student housing, student services, mental health and applying for Oxbridge.
Date: The courses will run from Monday 3 July – Friday 14 July 2023
Times: 09:00 – 16:00 daily
Attendees: Maximum class capacity of 14 students, with over 20 classes running simultaneously
Catering: Breakfast, morning snack and lunch will be provided
Teaching: The majority of the teachers on the course teach at Eton College
