Hello!

I'm a new member of TSR, so I apologise if this is in the wrong place!

I've been looking for some free/non-expensive summer residential courses after my exams, and I've not had much luck so far. I've applied to Cyberfirst futures (but now i'm stuck on a waiting list...) and the Cambridge Trinity Stonehouse Residential (still waiting to hear back from that!) but that's about it. NCS is too long of a commitment for me, and from what I hear the quality of the course greatly depends on where you live anyway :/

So I was wondering if anyone knew of any summer courses, in particular around the West Midlands (although i'll probably be able to travel if the course is long enough!) I'm particularly interested in university taster courses, as well as anything to do with French, German or Computing (my A-Level choices lol).

Thanks a bunch!

I’ve looked literally everywhere for cheap or free summer course type things, however they all seem to be in London or halfway across the country. I applied for Cyberfirst in the end, cause the other courses were well over £300 and only 2/3 days long.(I was on the waiting list for Cyberfirst too until recently lol) hope u found something

Yeah I applied last year and got in last minute, however I couldn’t make it at that point, but people generally started to drop out about this time, and I got an offer the week before the residential 😂
I hope u get in, I’m a tad scared cause I don’t know what to expect lol

😂 i just got into Warwick, so they seem to be making some progress, but at the end of the day, there’s loads more courses for y12/13 that y11, so there’s always that opportunity
