Following the success of the Seren International Online Summer School programmes in 2020 and 2021, the Welsh
Government is supporting the expansion of the programme to work with up to 400 of Wales’ brightest A Level students in July 2022.

Student feedback from 2021:

“The number of sessions on offer over the two weeks was far greater than I’d expected… From
subject specific lectures and seminars, to Q&A sessions with student representatives from
different universities, to a morning session where we played an online drawing version of Chinese
Whispers! Being able to present our work to an expert panel at the end of the programme was also
a particular highlight for me.”

“It has made me a much more motivated learner. I am much more excited for university now so I
am more driven to work even harder – utilising the skills I have learnt in the summer school.”
