University of Surrey Year 12 Residential Summer Schools 2018
Dear Parent/Carer

The applications for the University of Surrey’s 2018 Residential Summer Schools are now open! I am attaching a copy of our brochure detailing our summer schools; this year we are running programmes in 23 exciting subject areas! Whilst we are already oversubscribed for many of those subjects, we are still actively seeking applications for our English; Languages; Sports; and Engineering & Physical Sciences summer schools. If you have committed and talented students who you think would benefit from spending a week at university focussing on learning subject specific courses at higher education level please send them the details of our programme. Students will have the opportunity to work with undergraduates, academic staff, and students from other schools.  The programmes will include lectures, seminars, practical activities, and a variety of fun social events in the evenings. 
More information on each available subject can be found on our website,
