Courses for 15–17s
Every year we run a lively, creative summer school for students aged 15, 16 and 17.
Our courses are a good balance between practical, technical skills and creative ways of working that may be new to you.
Build a portfolio or attend just for fun – the choice is yours.
Each course runs for one week, Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm.

What do you look for in a summer school?
Our programme is delivered by experts who understand what university admissions tutors are looking for. As a summer school student, you'll have the chance to ask questions, experience university life, and ultimately make an informed decision about your future.
Our summer school is popular with people from all corners of the UK, across Europe, and throughout the world. We'll provide you with ideas of things to do in the evenings, and the freedom to explore them at your own pace.
You'll be based in the heart of Nottingham, near all the shops, galleries, cinemas and attractions, old and new. The Creative Quarter, Nottingham Castle and much more are all on your doorstep.
Nottingham is very easy to navigate on foot, and is one of the UK’s most popular student cities. As well as our famous tales of Robin Hood, we’re a UNESCO City of Literature, we have our own TV channel, and we’re home to The National Videogame Arcade.
