Access & Outreach/
Seren Summer Schools

We are proud of our strong historic links to Wales, and the access programmes we run in collaboration with the Seren Network.

The Seren Network is a Welsh Government initiative dedicated to helping Wales’ brightest students in years 8-13 to achieve their full academic potential, and support their education pathway into leading universities in Wales, the UK, and overseas.

It is a collaboration between Welsh Government, state schools and colleges, leading universities, alumni, local authorities, and third sector organisations to provide extensive national and regional activities.

Each summer, we organise the Jesus College Seren Summer Schools programme, for Year 12 Seren students. In early 2021we launched our largest programme yet, thanks to the benefaction of £1 million to our Welsh Access Fund from a Jesus alumnus and generous funding from the Welsh Government. Our newly-enhanced programme will reach a record 375 young people this year.
