For First Years

Headstart

  • Are you interested in science, technology, engineering, maths (STEM) or related subjects?
  • Do you want to find out more re: subjects, disciplines, careers?
  • Do you want to gain experience of university life & the working world?
  • Headstart is a fantastic opportunity giving you the chance to explore or reaffirm your options ahead of UCAS applications and ask questions you might not have had a chance to do. Make some really good friends along the way. Oh, and they look good on your CV or personal statement too.
  • The courses are residential, at a university, over 4 or 5 days. There is a fee (usually £330) to cover accommodation, meals and activities, but you may be able to get help with this.
  • For more information see www.headstartcourses.org.uk. Deadline for applications is 20th December if you want top priority
