“University of Edinburgh will be running a Summer School exclusively for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from Monday 13th to Wednesday 15th June 2022! This is an exciting opportunity for deaf and hard of hearing young people to find out more about different aspects of University life such as applying to the University, funding information and learn about different University services that is available to them as an University student. This follows on from last year’s successful event which was delivered online.
The summer school will be delivered on campus and is free for deaf and hard of hearing students all over the UK in S5/S6 (Year 12/13 in England/Wales or Year 13/14 in Northern Ireland) at school. Accommodation and catering will be provided at no extra charge.
