Sutton Trust Summer School 28 June to 3 July 2020

The Sutton Trust Summer School at the University of St Andrews is held each year in order to give pupils in S5 the chance to experience a week in the life of a university student. It has been proven that this experience, aimed at pupils who fulfil most of the criteria set out in the information material, is of great benefit when applying to competitive universities.

The residential week includes study within academic areas of interest, social activities and advice on UCAS related topics. The week is free of charge and pupils are only required to bring spending money for their personal use.

Applications are now open, and I would encourage your pupils to apply early. Applications close on 3 March 2020.

Further information can be found online at: www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/access/projects/sutton-trust
