Each year, the University of St. Andrews organises a completely free week-long residential summer school aimed at S5 pupils who are thinking about attending a competitive university. The purpose of this is to take away the fear of attending university and to equip students with the knowledge and insight to make high-quality applications.
When attending the summer school, students stay in the halls of residence where transport and food, etc is provided and will attend academic sessions in two subject areas of their choosing. There are also sessions on the UCAS application process, personal statements and student finance.
Applications are now open and pupils are encouraged to apply early. Further information can be found online at

Applications close on 28 February 2019.
