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
- staying in student accommodation
- examples of lectures and seminars
- 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
The Summer School will take place in 10 West.
Parents, guardians and carers can read our frequently asked questions for the Autism Summer School.
If travel costs to the summer school based at the University of Bath will present a barrier to attendance, please let us know via the email address listed on the right.
The Autism Summer School has been generously supported by Widening Participation, Robert Burgess (Business Administration 1994), and The Three Guinea’s Trust.
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.
