    I'm going into year 11 in September, and I'm wondering what sort of summer courses I can do during the year 11 summer holidays. I want to do Japanese at uni, but not many places offer it at a summer school level (understandably), I would be quite happy to do something geography, maths or physics based too (my current a level choices). I'm from a state school if that helps. Thanks

    I'm looking to attend a Summer School next year (2017 Summer) as most of the courses say that you should be 16! Also, most if not all the universities have an admissions process where pupils will have to apply (by sending in a personal statement)- This would have occurred a few months before June/July! Some of these Summer Schools (such as Imperial College) ask for a fee (that can run into the thousands of pounds). Imperial's places are based on those who pay the fees earliest (most of their courses are supported for those who are eligible). For other Universities you may have to meet academic requirement as well as shown an interest in the subject you want to be part of (in your case Japanese or Maths).

    These are the types of summer schools I am aware of. There mat be chance you can attend a summer school this year although, as of yet, I haven't seen a university that has a free,open non-admissions/conditioned summer school

    I hope this helped

    I think (if I can persuade my parents to pay the hefty fee) I'd like to do the imperial one. In year 12 I'll apply for one of the Sutton Trusr courses, but I doubt I'll get in (I've never been free school meals etc). Thanks!
