Year 10 Summer Residential date
Monday 5th August – Wednesday 7th August 2019
A Free Insight to University Life
If you are interested in finding out more about Higher Education, meeting new people and gaining new, exciting experiences, then our completely free of charge Summer School could be a fantastic opportunity for you.
This unique experience will give you a taster of university life; giving you the opportunity to explore different subject taster sessions lead by academic staff and current BGU students. We hope that by the end of the week, you will have a better understanding and confidence in knowing whether Higher Education is the right choice for you.
During the Summer School you will be provided with free meals and accommodation with your peers and our student ambassadors, getting a real feel for the student experience while making new friends and having fun throughout! Last year’s cohort were treated to, alongside campus study taster sessions, social activities such as laser tag and fancy dress competitions! Our student ambassadors and university stuff will be on hand throughout to guide you, support you, and help you feel right at home.
