Leeds Summer Schools

Our national programme of summer schools provide 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 / Year 1 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.

Subject choices 

Leeds Summer Schools are available in the following disciplines:

  • Biological Sciences
  • Food Science
  • Lanuages (Linguastars)
  • Medicine and Dentistry
  • Mathematics
  • Social Sciences (including Education, Business, Law, Geography, Sociology, Social Policy, Politics)

How it works

Students may apply to one specific summer school in the preceeding 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 regarding any overnight stays on campus.
