University Of Glasgow Summer School


Each year pupils attend our Summer School to benefit from an adjusted offer of entry and to help prepare for university life.

Summer School registration: Before registering for Summer School please download and read our Summer School registration notes.

If you are an S5 or S6 pupil at a target school, or an adult applicant to Glasgow who has come through a College or Open Studies route, you are eligible to apply for a place on the four week programme.

Summer School takes place on our campus in the west end of Glasgow from June 19th – July 14th 2017 and you study two academic subjects of your choice, plus a compulsory online academic skills course. Classes run from Monday – Friday and although timetables vary depending on subjects chosen, you can expect to have around 20 hours of contact time each week. You can also use the student unions, sports facilities, library and some student support services.

The tuition fee for Summer School is £210 and funding is available through Skills Development Scotland. ILA applications will only be accepted in April and we will provide guidance on this process.

Summer School will prepare you for making the transition to university study and our research indicates that you should perform to a higher standard in your first year and be more likely to complete your degree at Glasgow than comparable students who don’t do it. Other Scottish universities may also value your success in Summer School.
