Summer School in Oxford by North West Science Network

The North West Science Network — a partnership between Corpus Christi College (Oxford), Cheshire College South and West (Crewe), Xaverian College (Manchester), and Blackburn College (Blackburn) — runs an annual, focus-on-science summer school for Y12 learners from the Northwest.

The summer school is a week-long residential hosted at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Students from state-maintained sixth forms and colleges travel down to Oxford on a coach for this free week of STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) teaching and events. Accommodation, meals and the cost of transport are all covered.

What happened last year?

Last year’s summer school took place from 20th to 24th June 2022. Students received a timetable on arrival; a mixture of lectures from Oxford academics, tutorials, a group research project, and visited Oxford’s science departments and labs.

On one day, the group visited the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy to see research scientists and the future of energy in action. Student ambassadors from Corpus Christi College, studying a range of STEMM subjects, were on hand throughout the week to help with research projects and give an insight into university life.

How about this year?

This year’s summer school will take place from 19th to 23rd June 2023. More details on how to apply will be released soon. Make sure you follow them on Twitter or check their website if you don’t want to miss it!
