Additional information for applicants

We're proud to deliver our Summer Experience Programmes in partnership with the Medical Schools Council, Health Education England and ARU's School of Medicine, Cambridge School of Art and Cambridge School of Creative Industries.

Applications will be assessed based on programme eligibility criteria and the 500-word supporting statement. Places are limited and so priority will be given to students:

  • From ‘low participation neighbourhoods.’ Find out if you live in a low participation neighbourhood
  • Who are eligible for free school meals
  • Who would be the first in their family to progress to Higher Education
  • Who are currently in care, or who have been in care at some point in their lifetime
  • From military families
  • From GRTSB communities
  • With special educational needs or disabilities, including mental health difficulties
  • Estranged from their families and studying without the support and approval of a family network
  • Who are asylum seekers or refugees
  • Who are considered ‘young carers,’ helping to look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. To qualify as a young carer, you must be caring above and beyond what is normally expected. There is no time limit on the amount of care you provide for your dependent.
