Pre-university Summer School

Dates to be Confirmed for 2018


The University of Exeter is offering an engaging and innovative programme with different pathways for students in their last two years of high school. The focus is for students who are interested in studying in the area of Medicine or Law, and who want to experience university life in the UK. 

Medicine

The Pre-University Summer School in Medicine has run for the last two summers with great popularity. This intensive academic programme combines university-style teaching (lectures, problem-based-learning and small group work) with hands-on, practical sessions at our Clinical Skills Resource Centre, to develop an understanding of the clinical and communication skills required in the medical professions. 

There will also be a chance to learn more about the UCAS application process including writing personal statements, aptitude tests (UKCAT and BMAT) and preparing for interview, as well as an overview of the careers opportunities available for graduates in all of our medical degree programmes.

Law

The Pre-University Summer School in Law is a new offering for 2018 and will be an intensive programme to introduce students to the delights and demands of studying Law at one of the top universities in the UK.

The programme will be a combination of university-style teaching (lectures, problem-based-learning and small group work) with field trips to the Courts of Justice in London and engaging sessions with current practicising Law professionals. The topics covered will include core components of a Law degree and other options available, as well as problem-based-learning real life case studies.

There will also be a chance to learn more about the UCAS application process including writing personal statements, as well as an overview of the careers opportunities available for graduates in all of our Law degree programmes.

The Programme

As well as the academic programme, the course fee includes accommodation provided in University of Exeter Halls on the Streatham campus in Exeter, one of the most beautiful in the UK, and a safe environment in which to stay. The programme will also include social events to help you get to know fellow students, the historic city of Exeter and the beaches and countryside of Devon.
