Post-16 Digital Summer Schools

At Leicester we are Citizens of Change. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are changing the way we work in a huge number of ways which includes moving all of our Summer Schools online for 2020, and therefore are delighted to introduce our first ever programme of post-16 Digital Summer Schools.

Why attend Digital Summer School?

  • Access thought-provoking content developed by our team of world-class academics
  • Develop essential skills required to be a successful university student
  • Collaborate and work online with other students from across the country
  • Prepare to make the transition from school/college to Higher Education

Week A : Monday 20 July 2020 – Friday 24 July 2020

Our first week is designed for students interested in a wide range of University subjects. As we are developing a brand new programme for online delivery, confirmed departments will be updated here regularly.

Week B : Monday 27 July 2020 – Friday 31 July 2020 (Medicine)

Our second week focuses on Medicine and is for students considering a career as a doctor. Sessions are scheduled to include:

  • Introduction to Medicine (GP, Psychiatry and Acute)
  • Introduction to Allied Health careers (including Physiotherapy, Nursing, Midwifery and Operating Department Practice)
  • Medical taster sessions covering cardiovascular, respiratory and neuromuscular
  • Applying to medical school and preparing a personal statement
  • Preparing for UCAT
  • Preparing for interview (MMI focus)
  • Workshop on resilience, good mental health and empathy

(Topics subject to change. Please check here for updates.)

Who are Digital Summer Schools for?

You must currently be in year 12 and studying at a state funded school or college. Other eligibility criteria will be assessed on the application form (now closed).

How much does it cost?

Nothing! Our summer schools are entirely free to participate in.

Applications are now closed

Applications for our post-16 Summer Schools are now closed. Thankyou to everybody that applied for a place this year. The deadline for applications was 5 June 2020. We will be in contact with all applicants with the outcome of your application no later than Friday 12 June 2020.

If you applied for a place before we moved our Summer Schools online, your application is still valid and was automatically transferred to an application for the Digital Summer Schools.

If you have any questions at all, please direct them to and we will get back to you.

Good luck with your application, and we hope to see you online for one of our post-16 Digital Summer Schools in July.
