All costs associated with accommodation and meals for the week are covered by the University of Strathclyde, and the only costs that must be covered by attendees is the cost of travel associated with getting to and from the programme, which must be organised by pupils and parents.

The Scottish Space School 2020 will take place from Monday 15 June until Friday 19 June. This is a residential programme and pupils will stay on campus during this time.
