Summer schools boost application success

From the BBC:

The research, led by Dr Tony Hoare and Rosanna Munn at University of Bristol, attempted to quantify the effectiveness of the scheme.

“I was pleased with the results. The word on the street from the universities was that summer schools worked, but until now the evidence was anecdotal,” said Dr Hoare.

The team measured the effectiveness of the scheme, including tracking up to 250,000 students through the Ucas university application system.

The researchers found strong statistical evidence that having attended a summer school was associated with an increased likelihood of applying to at least one of the participating universities and to other leading universities.
