Headstart Cymru residential courses give Year 12 students the opportunity to spend time at an Engineering or Computing Department at University prior to submitting their UCAS application. 

Students stay in University accommodation, tour the campus with undergraduates and attend lecture-style and practical sessions.  Courses give pupils an authentic experience of University life.  Evening activities are arranged to give students an opportunity to socialise with students with similar interests.
