Supporting the transition from school to university
The Bath Autism Summer School includes three days and two nights of activities that will enable you to experience life as a university student. This includes:
- a campus tour
- a visit to student accommodation
- talks from other students with ASD who will share their experiences of life at university
- meals in university restaurants
- stress and anxiety workshops
- talks about clubs and societies
- an overview of student services and the Students' Union
- a visit to the Sports Training Village
We will announce the timetable for this event in early May 2016. To help you get an idea of what happens at the Summer School you can view our timetable from the previous year's event.

Attending the Summer School
We have space for 30 students who are in years 12 or 13 who are thinking of going to university.
Applications for the Bath Autism Summer School are open until 15 July 2016.
We anticipate the Summer School will be very popular which unfortunately means not all applicants will be able to attend. You will be notified if you have been successful by the end of July 2016.
For any queries about this event you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This event recognises the potential difficulties around transition of students on the autism spectrum in dealing with novel experiences and offers students the opportunity to experience university life in a supportive environment.
We commend Drs Chris Ashwin, Mark Brosnan and Ailsa Russell for their thoughtful and very important practical initiative, which we hope to see in other universities.”
