Summer Schools

The University of Bradford runs a number of free summer schools to help you with your transition to higher education.

Year 13 summer schools

Our Year 13 assessed summer school is for students who have applied to the University of Bradford and have accepted us as their Conditional Firm (CF) or Insurance (CI) offer. 

This year's summer school will be held from 18-21 July. It will be a non-residential four day academic summer school.

Students who successfully complete the summer school will be eligible to receive 30 UCAS points towards their offer at Bradford (excluding the Bradford Foundation Year and Optometry).

Find out more on our Schools and Colleges website.


Trans:it Summer Schools

We hold two free two-day events to help support your transition into university - one for mature students/adult learners and the other for eligible new starters.

They include workshops and items covering:

  • tips for you to make the move into university as smooth as possible
  • becoming an independent learner
  • deciphering jargon and making the most of your lectures
  • reading strategies and effective note-taking
  • how to write in an academic style
  • library, IT and finding resources

This year the Trans:it Summer School takes place on 12-13 September, and the Trans:it Summer School (Mature Students) takes place on 14-15 September. If you are eligible to take part you should receive an email inviting you to book a place.
