The University of Glasgow Summer School offers a six week experience of student life and undergraduate study. Participants choose two academic subjects and a study skills module, to ensure you have a solid grounding in the independent learning style you will need at university. Classes run from Monday – Friday, and although timetables vary depending on subjects chosen, you can expect to have around 16-20 hours of contact time each week. Students can also use the student unions, sports facilities, library, and student support services.

Summer School is open to:

  • Students from our partner schools or any Glasgow City Council school.
  • Applicants to Glasgow whose home postcode is in an MD20 or MD40 zone.
  • College leavers who are applying to Glasgow for 2015 entry.

If you are in one of these categories then it is also possible that the University will make you a conditional offer that is dependent upon completion of Summer School. These conditions are usually made on adjusted grade tariffs, so Summer School attendance reduces the grades we ask you to achieve in S5 and S6.


If we have asked you to attend Summer School as part of your offer:
• You will not have to pay anything for the course, although we may ask you to fill in a form to help us secure external funding to cover tuition costs.
• If you live more than 30 miles away from Glasgow, we will offer you free accommodation in student halls of residence for the duration of the Summer School.
• If you are travelling from home into the university, we will provide a travel pass for you.
• We strongly recommend that you do not book a holiday over the dates of the course, as a minimum attendance requirement will be in place.
