HOW TO APPLY

 

What you need to do:

The application form will ask you for some personal details so that we can get in touch with you once a decision has been made about your application. We’ll also ask you to share some information for monitoring, tracking, evaluation and research, which is explained fully in the form, but you do not have to agree to this. We will consider your application even if you say no.

As part of the application, you will need to write 500 words on one topic; this should be the topic you want to study during the Summer Experience. You can choose from:

  • Biological Science: A life for a life. Is the use of embryonic stem cells in medical research justified? Argue passionately for and against.

  • Business Studies: Write about somebody in business you admire. Tell us why you think they make a good business person. Think about their professional image, behaviour and reputation.

  • Literature Film and Theatre Studies: Delve into the fascinating world of relationships by immersing yourself in one of our key texts - we've selected a short play, a short story and a group of poems for you to choose from. You may want to critically analyse how relationships are depicted in your text by writing an essay. Alternatively, you may feel inspired to write a poem, song, rap, short story, piece of drama, epilogue or prologue. Any such response is acceptable.

Top tip! We recommend writing your answer before you start. Then you can copy/paste into the application form. You don’t need to be an expert; we just want to see that you’ve got some interesting ideas.

We’ll aim to let you know if you’ve been successful by mid-June.

 

What your teacher needs to do:

Your teacher needs to give a very short reference by filling out an online form. We cannot consider your application without this.

To submit a teacher reference:

 

 

 

What your parents/guardians need to do:


Nothing, unless you are successful.

If your application is successful, we’ll be in touch to ask for parental/guardian consent, medical/dietary information and emergency contacts. If we don’t hear from your parents/guardians then we’ll have to reallocate your place.

Still got questions? Feel free to email outreach@essex.ac.uk or call 02016 872295.
