Durham University Sutton Trust Summer Schools
Applications for the 2018 Durham University Sutton Trust Summer School have now closed.
Sutton Trust Summer School Programme 2018
Durham University's Sutton Trust Summer School, kindly supported by the Oak Foundation, Barclays and The Garfield Weston Foundation, is designed to give bright students from non-privileged homes the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a student at a leading university. The residential summer school is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about applying to university, to meet some of our current students and work with our academic departments. This programme is available for gifted and talented Year 12 students from UK state-maintained schools.
In addition to the opportunities and information above, those who successfully complete the programme and perform to the required standard in the assessed summer school project at the end of Year 12 will be recognised as having achieved a qualification equivalent to 16-32 UCAS tariff points. This will contribute towards meeting the entry requirements for a programme of study within the academic department with which they completed their assessment at Durham University. Students will then receive a guaranteed, conditional offer for that particular course should they apply to Durham University during Year 13.
Sutton Trust Summer Schools are free of charge! Not only is you place free, but we will also pay for your transport, accommodation, food and all activities and resources. There really is no cost to attend!

We'd love to hear from you!
