Hertford Access Summer School

Hertford's inaugural Access Summer School will run from 22–25 June 2016.

It is an intensive residential programme designed to give potential applicants from UK state schools a range of targeted academic support, advice on aptitude tests and interviews, and training in study skills. It is also a chance to experience college life as we wind down from Trinity term.

In 2016 the Summer School will offer a limited number of places for Y12 students considering applying for Biology, Chemistry, English and Philosophy and its Joint Schools (at Hertford Philosophy may be combined with Computer Science, Maths, Modern Languages and Physics).

The Summer School is fully-funded by Hertford and will be free to all those selected to take part. Travel expenses will also be provided.

Students who wish to apply to take part in the Summer School should, by 22 May 2016, submit the information detailed below to the Registrar at matthew [dot] hiscock [at] hertford [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk
your GCSE results
your predicted A Level (or equivalent) results 
a short statement of no more than 250 words about your reasons for wishing to attend the Summer School
a short reference written by one of your teachers 
In either the statement or the reference applicants/teachers are encouraged to any indicate any reason or reasons why support of this kind might be particularly helpful – e.g. where a student qualifies for free school meals, the pupil premium, or the 16–19 bursary/EMA; where a student has been in care, comes from a family with no history of progression to HE, or an area with low participation; or where a student comes from a background under-represented at Russell Group universities.
