Summer Schools

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

Applicant Progression Summer School

Our Applicant Progression 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 24-28 July. It will be a non-residential four day academic summer school.

Students who successfully complete the summer school will be eligible to receive 12 UCAS points towards their offer at Bradford (excluding non-included courses).

Find out more on our Schools and Colleges website.


Trans:it Summer Schools

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

They include sessions and information on:

  • 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
  • how to write in an academic style
  • Library, IT and finding resources

The Trans:it Summer Schools take place in early September.  If you are eligible to take part you should receive an email inviting you to book a place.
