Greater Manchester Higher Uni:4U Capital Summer School | 3 – 5 July 2018


NCOP logo

Working with Greater Manchester Higher, AccessHE delivered a 2 night / 3 day (Tuesday 3 – Thursday 5 July) residential summer school in London for 23 year 12 students from schools/colleges participating in the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in the Greater Manchester area. The students were divided into three subject strands for the duration of the summer school – Creative Arts, Humanities and STEM- allowing for both subject-specific work and more general activities.

The students experienced the capital city not just as a tourist, visitor, student or resident but all of these!

Over the three days, the students were given the opportunity to experience London from a variety of perspectives. Not only did they see some of the most famous sights, but they became honorary university students, staying in real university halls of residence.

We had a very busy itinerary packed with subject workshops, campus tours, visits to museums, a trip up the London Eye and a West End show! You can find the itinerary here.

We are delighted to say that feedback from the summer school has been overwhelmingly positive. This is the first in a series of AccessHE Summer Schools in partnership with various NCOPs.
