Who are the sessions for? 

Year 12 students studying at least one STEM subject at A level (Year 11 students considering studying STEM subjects at A level, and Year 13 students studying STEM subjects at A level are also welcome to apply for places). 


When you apply you will be asked to select which session(s) you would like to attend – we would expect you to choose at least two sessions, but would love it if you could come to all four. 

Places will be limited, and priority will be given to students who fulfil our Access to Leeds criteria.   

Applications for places are now open, please apply here.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Monday 26 April 2021.
