How to apply

Stage 1 – Submit your application. Applications are submitted through the Aspire application system. Each application must contain your most recent achieved grades from all subjects you are studying, as well as any formal qualifications (e.g. GCSEs) you have achieved in the last 2 years. It must also contain your personal statement, and information regarding your English language ability. Please follow this guidance when completing your application.

Stage 2 – Submit your references. Your parent/guardian, and a teacher, will need to check your application and submit a reference for you in order for your application to be complete. They can access this via a link in an email they will receive once you have submitted your application (Stage 1).

Stage 3 – Application assessment. Your application will be assessed by the Global Summer School Team alongside other applications submitted within the same application round.

Stage 4 – Conditional offer. Successful applicants will receive a conditional offer. You will have 5 days to upload your supporting documents (passport scan and proof of qualifications) to our application system.

Stage 5 – Unconditional offer. Once the Global Summer School Team has checked these documents you will receive a formal unconditional offer. You will have 14 days to make payment in order to confirm your place.
