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 proved 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.

The Summer School for 2019 will be held from 30th June to 5th July.

Applications are open until 28th February 2019. Pupils are encouraged to apply early. Further information can be found online and at Sutton Trust.
