    I AM
    you still won't have anyone to discuss it with though because I'm more of a lurker than a contributor to this site but hey ho :rolleyes:
    I am unbelievably excited, I sooo want to do it
    I keep telling people about it so I might get a friend who'll do it as well hahah
    It's actually perfect for me - I love science, I want to do research in the future, I want to learn more about the world around me and plus I don't do that much in the summer anyways :P
    I'll be gutted if I don't get one

    I'm applying for it too! What region are you doing it in?
    It will probably be the highlight of my summer if I get a spot.

    I don't think it says anything about having to attend a state school on the website, but I'd suggest you contact your local co-coordinator for more information.

    There are only a few places for non state school people .'If you are from an independent school and are accepted onto the scheme, you will need to source your own project. Please note that this should be within the region where you live, as otherwise we are not able to cover travel costs.' So yeah that sucks

    Don't even know what that really means. Not even going to bother, they only offer a few places and the standard will be really high from independent school people

    I'm only speculating, but I suspect it means they won't find placements for you, only fund them when you do.

    What funding would be required though if it's only within the region. Transport? Food?

    I wonder where I can get them...hmm

    Cardiff is a gem of the scientific world, I hear :mmm:

    I just noticed that they've made applications all online based. A win for the socially anxious :awesome:

    The university is good fun

    I've decided NatSci would be good for me, so any chem/physics would be nice!

    And my whole family are leaving me alone in the summer (my choice I don't want to go abroad for 5+ weeks) so it'd be good. It says techniquest is my local rep, so I'll email them

    I'm supposed to visit my family in Australia in the summer :rolleyes:

    You had to apply by email last year, but apparently not this year.

    Anyone applying for the Oxford UNIQ summer schools?
    Yes! Trouble is, I want to do Maths (Numbers & Codes) and it's due to finish on the 18th, and that's supposed to be the day I go to Malaysia so I'm either applying for that or for biochem I think! Malaysia date is not 100% confirmed so fingers crossed its a couple of days later aaaah! You going for Sutton trust as well?

    My subjects are:

    Mathematics: Edexcel
    Chemistry: AQA
    English Literature: AQA
    Economics: Edexcel
    ummmm they were there? that's strange :lol: i've put another on for you
