Sutton Trust Summer School in Economics

The Sutton Trust Summer Schools are free subject-specific residential courses for Year 12 (or equivalent) students from UK state-maintained schools. The five-day summer schools in July and August allow students to explore their interest in one of 22 subject courses and gain an insight into what it is like to live and study as a first-year undergraduate student at Cambridge. The programme includes lectures, seminars, discussion groups, practical work and social activities, as well as the opportunity to meet current staff and students and to live in a Cambridge College.
