NCOP logo

Working with Greater Manchester Higher, AccessHE has agreed to deliver a 2 night / 3 day (Tuesday 3 – Thursday 5 July) residential summer school in London for 50 year 12 students from schools/colleges participating in the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in the Greater Manchester area. The students will be 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.

These students will be experiencing the capital city not just as a tourist, visitor, student or resident but all of these!

Over the three days, the students will experience London from a variety of perspectives. Not only will they see and experience some of the most famous sights, but they will also become honorary university students and stay in real university halls of residence. They will learn and socialise with students living in London, whilst also meeting and hearing from university staff too.

We have planned a 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 draft itinerary here.
