We're delighted to report that all the students who completed the 2012 Summer School for Access have been offered a place for full-time or part-time study here at the University of Glasgow in Dumfries.
Summer School for Access: who is it for?
Summer School is particularly suitable if you have had a break in your studies, for example if you are planning a return to education after working for a while or having children. It’s ideal if you are considering part-time or full-time study and you want to get an idea of the level of work and commitment required. It’s also a great way for school or college-leavers to make a smooth transition to university.
Why consider Summer School?
Students who complete our Summer School develop the confidence and academic skills to really excel at university. It offers a head start, preparing you for the challenges of higher education.
Successful completion of Summer School can assist with entry to our degree programmes in Environmental Stewardship and Health & Social Studies.
One of the added bonuses of Summer School is having the opportunity to meet fellow students before your degree programme even starts. Previous Summer School students consistently say that this has helped them settle in and become part of our friendly academic community.
What does it cost?
There is no participation fee for Summer School, as it is generously supported by the Crichton Foundation. Support with travel and accommodation may also be available. Please contact us for further information.
We offer Summer School part-time, two days per week, over six weeks during the summer months. You will study a range of subjects drawn from our undergraduate curriculum.
The course also includes:
- Guidance from an adviser of studies
