Head Start Summer School

If you are a Compact Scheme student starting your studies here at Kingston in September, you are invited to join our Head Start Summer School event.

As well as feeling excited at the prospect of starting university, you may also be a little apprehensive about what lies ahead. Our Head Start Summer School is designed to help prepare you for life as an undergraduate student. This three-day event is completely free of charge and includes the chance to stay in our halls.

When does Head Start take place?

Head Start is delivered three times in the summer to allow all Compact Scheme candidates the best possible opportunity to attend. You only need to attend one event.

Attendees are offered two or three nights' free accommodation in our Seething Wells halls of residence, although some students can attend as day delegates.

The 2016 Head Start summer schools have now passed. The dates for the 2017 Head Start summer schools will be confirmed in the near future, so please keep checking back.
