If you are interested in finding out more about Higher Education and want a real hands-on experience of what it’s like to be a University student, then our completely free of charge Summer School could be a fantastic opportunity for you.
This unique experience will give you the opportunity to increase your academic confidence, break out of your comfort zone and take part in a selection of subject taster sessions led by both academic staff and current BGU students. We hope by the end of the week you will be able to consider Higher Education as a suitable option for your future.
During the Summer School, you will be provided with free meals and accommodation right here on the BGU Campus so you can really get a feel for student life while making new friends and having fun in the process. Participants last year were treated to on-campus academic taster sessions, a quiz night in our Students Union and a superheroes fancy dress competition, amongst other fantastic activities. In addition, our BGU Student Ambassadors will be on hand throughout the week to guide you and make you feel at home.
