Not only have I gained knowledge but I have also became more confident in myself and my ability to work in a team environment. The summer school is a great opportunity to see what options are available beyond your local area. It gives you the chance to travel to other places and explore the city as well as what the university has to offer. There is a lot to gain from attending a summer school and its an opportunity that should be taken. Eugene, Armagh, Summer School 2019 - University College London
All my formal education has been taught through Welsh so I was concerned that switching to English was going to be too challenging, but the ice breaker sessions and the social sessions provided an opportunity to get to know others in a fun way and helped me step out of my comfort zone. Following my time at the summer school, I have gained confidence in my ability to meet new people and to function well in both social and academic settings. Megan, Caerphilly, Summer School 2019 - The University of Bristol
I was so worried about not fitting in, or not being the stereotypical person who applies to Cambridge. However, as soon as I arrived at the train station my worries flooded away. Attending the Summer School reassured me that Cambridge is a place where I can apply and will fit in. The support we were given to help us with personal statements, admissions tests and interviews was invaluable! Ellie, Gateshead, UK Summer School 2019 - University of Cambridge
From the personal statement workshop to living in university halls, my time at Warwick has enabled me to make well informed decisions about my forthcoming university options. This opportunity provided me with an insight into life as a student which will hopefully better prepare me for the future. Overall meeting different people and engaging in so many awesome activities has left me feeling less apprehensive and more excited for university life. Gloria, Deptford, Summer School 2017 - University of Warwick
