EDT and Industrial Cadets logo-340


Registration for EDT Residential Insight into University 2023 courses is now open.


Residential Insight into University courses are Industrial Cadets accredited summer schools which can help you decide which degree course might be right for you and also enhance your UCAS application. Courses run over 4 or 5 days where Yr12/S5-6 students get a taster of university life and an insight into a specific STEM subject. In summer 2023 these will include:


  • Materials Science at University of Oxford
  • Maths at Lancaster University
  • Broad-based Engineering at University of Sheffield
  • Materials Science at University of Cambridge
  • Robotics & Autonomous Systems at University of Liverpool
  • Mechanical Engineering at UCL
  • Life Sciences at University of Warwick – details coming soon
  • Aerospace Engineering at University of Liverpool – details coming soon


It’s just like studying at university! You will get the opportunity to experience university style lectures and work on activities and group projects with the support of academics and student mentors. Throughout the duration of the course, you will stay in halls of residence and will take part in social activities in the evenings.
