Our national programme of summer schools provides an opportunity for students to explore a chosen subject area and experience what it’s like to live and learn at Leeds.
Designed for Year 12 learners, our summer schools offer a unique insight into university life. Students take part in interactive workshops and engaging practical sessions which develop their subject knowledge, study skills and careers awareness. Students will also meet current undergraduates, academics, stay overnight in student accommodation and participate in social activities and events.
Leeds Summer Schools are available in the following disciplines:
- Biological Sciences
- Engineering (in partnership with the Smallpeice Trust)
- Food Science and Nutrition
- Languages (Linguastars)
- Medicine (non-residential) – online with one day on campus in May
- Social Sciences (including Education, Business, Geography, Sociology, Social Policy, Politics)
We are also pleased to offer an Art Teachers Residential which offers a unique opportunity for teachers and their schools to improve their delivery of both academic and practical art lessons. This free two and a half day residential course at the University of Leeds provides critical advice, insight and experience from current art and art history teachers, academics and arts professionals.
How it works
Students may apply to one specific summer school in the preceding autumn/spring term. Each summer school programme is different, taking place in June or July depending on the chosen subject. Once enrolled, students will receive a full programme and practical information about any overnight stays on campus.
