Information for teachers

We rely on the support of teachers/tutors in providing information to students, referencing applications and generally encouraging students to apply. Your support is invaluable in making the programme a success, so thank you for your efforts throughout the coming months.

There will be two BU Summer Breaks taking place in summer 2019, with a maximum capacity of 80 students. Students will be offered places on the basis of their application, meeting our target criteria in at least one area. Students who have attended a BU Summer Break previously will not be eligible for a place.

All places are fully funded by BU and free to the individual; this includes meals, accommodation at our Talbot Campus and all social activities as part of the programme. We will also support the cost of travel to and from our Talbot Campus for students attending the Summer Break. In many cases we will make arrangements for travel on behalf of students.

What role do I play?

  • Disseminating information and promotional material in your school, academy or college.
  • Providing a point of contact for general questions, hand-in of application forms.
  • Organising a reference for each application (this may be a single staff member, or relevant teacher/tutor to the individual – for example a form tutor).
  • Ongoing support & encouragement for students, particularly post application, to ensure they attend

We’re here to help…

Our team are able to support you in promoting these events to your students and to provide applications workshops over a lunch break or after school. We will offer a short presentation with details of the events and what students might expect, before offering general tips and guidance to get the application right.
