Summer School for Students with Autism and Asperger Syndrome

Tuesday 19 - Thursday 21 July 2016

The summer school provides new students with the opportunity to become familiar with the university during a quieter period and begin to prepare for successfully managing their transition to university.

The Summer School is a free event and is open to any student.

Specifically this summer school will offer:

  • An opportunity to experience a lecture and develop academic skills
  • A two night stay in the Halls of Residence and the opportunity to prepare a meal (this part is optional)
  • A talk from current students, with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, who attended the summer school last year, to hear about their experiences of university so far
  • An opportunity to begin to get to know other students and discover what is provided by the Students Union
  • A focus on different types of support available and how to make best use of these
  • An opportunity for a one to one meeting with someone from the Student Wellbeing Team to talk through any concerns and to develop an action plan for preparing for university
  • An invite to a workshop‌ for your parents/carers about preparing for your transition to university.
