Covid-19 Update

We were very disappointed to have to cancel our 2021 programme on campus as of 8th March 2021. Following a successful online programme this summer, we're really looking forward to hopefully welcoming students back onto campus for our 2022 programme! Please be assured that we are still planning for all contingencies and always have the safety of our students, staff and wider community at the forefront of any decision.

One of the International Summer School's key features is the chance to experience the UK and meet people from all over the world. We have hosted more than 27 nationalities and every continent from around the world in the last three years which really gives people the chance to learn about their interests from the perspectives of others.
