The Aston Intensive Summer Study Programme will provide students with an opportunity to gain a detailed, hands-on insight into undergraduate study.
This three day non-residential programme will allow APP students to embark on a subject specific STEM learning experience at Aston University. APP students will receive lectures from our world-class academics and postgraduate tutors, will be involved in interactive workshops, will run experiments within some of our university laboratories and advanced research facilities, and will have access to independent learning spaces to complete a piece of academic piece of work.
During the application process students will be asked to rank in order of preference the four STEM subject streams available for the Intensive Summer Study Programme. Students will only participate in one stream - however we cannot guarantee that they will all receive their first choice.
Transition from sixth form to higher education is a daunting prospect particularly for those with little or no family history of higher education. This programme will provide students with an exclusive insight into undergraduate study, enabling them to sample university level teaching and learning.
The nature of the programme aims to bridge the gap between A-level and undergraduate study, easing transition by providing students with a realistic insight into, and understanding of university study.
