Throughout the academic year, we work with the Seren Academy.  The Seren Academy is a fully funded Welsh Government initiative dedicated to supporting Wales’ most able state educated learners achieve their full academic potential into leading universities and succeed on highly selective degree programmes.  Each Summer, we are delighted to host the Year 11 Summer School for state-school students from across Wales.


New College is one of the host colleges for Oxford University's UNIQ Summer School.

UNIQ aims to raise the aspirations of students at UK state schools and colleges regarding their higher education choices, and helps them to create competitive applications to the University of Oxford. Participants are given a realistic experience of what being a student at the University is really like, including lectures, seminars and workshops.
