Hi,

I'm going into year 10. I've heard that there are some summer schools/ internship weeks that you should/ could do in year 10, and you'd have to apply quite a bit in advance. Does anyone know about any summer schools available for year 10, or been to any?

Hi, I know this is a bit different from what you asked for but Millfield's School in Somerset offers English Mentor Scholarships where you mentor international students on the Millfield's campus and you get to stay there, food and get to participate in activities with them as well. I was planning to apply this year but coronavirus happened. Here's the link: https://www.millfieldenterprises.com...eecc6764de7cda

Look at universities as they tend to do some for lower years.

Not sure yet. Definitely down the STEM path- probably either economics or engineering.

Loughborough Uni do quite a few summer schools, not sure what they do for year 10, but I know they definitley do some for year 11/12 (for STEM)

Also have a look at the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) they run some engineering and maths summer schools
