A unique residential experience

A summer school at Essex is an experience of a lifetime.

With links our to award-winning THINK series, join our programme this summer and pick up the knowledge and skills you’ll need for university life by living and learning like an undergraduate student.

You'll live like an undergraduate student in university halls, cooking for yourself and socialising. So you’ll get an authentic university experience that will help place you above others when it comes to writing university applications.

And importantly…it won’t cost you a penny! It's completely free of charge and we take care of everything: return travel to campus, accommodation, all meals and social activities. You’ll head back to sixth form with a whole new set of skills, full of confidence and ready for the year ahead.

If any of your staff or students would like to access our Faith Centre while on campus, please let the event organiser know.
