Headstart Cymru

Do you:

  • Want to know how to choose the right university?
  • Want to know more about STEM subjects?
  • Want to make friends with similar interests?

We can help by…

  • Introducing several different branches of science and engineering
  • providing hands-on experience of real practical problem solving
  • showing you what it’s like to study for a degree at university
  • helping you choose which course is best
  • providing a valuable addition to UCAS personal statements

Headstart Cymru provides an opportunity for students in Year 12 to spend three days at university prior to making their UCAS application. Headstart Cymru is a residential summer school; students will stay in typical undergraduate accommodation at the university, and attend broad-based courses looking at a range of engineering disciplines. Courses are designed to give students a real taste of what it is like to study at university.
