Sutton Trust US Programme

The Sutton Trust US Programme helps state school students in the UK to explore higher education and US culture. The programme includes UK-based residentials before all students get to visit US universities in the summer of 2022.

An optional part 2 of the programme supports students to apply to US universities alongside their UCAS options.

In order to be eligible for the Sutton Trust Programme, students must:

  • Be in Year 12 in England or Wales, S5 in Scotland or Year 13 in Northern Ireland

  • Attend, and have always attended, a state-funded school or college (i.e. non fee-paying)

  • Not hold US citizenship

  • Be from a low or middle income family (generally a household earning £45,000 or less)

  • Be interested in US culture and higher education

Places in the programme are completely free and although applications for the 2022 programme have closed, you can register to be notified when applications open for the 2023 programme in late Autumn 2022.

The application process mirrors the system used to apply to US Universities and includes the following:

  • Academic profile

  • Extracurricular activities

  • Short essays

  • Video

  • Teacher reference

Applicants have the opportunity to showcase academic interests, but also other passions as well as personality. They also ask for a teacher reference to accompany the application, so students should be sure to begin their application early.
