With a wide variety of subject areas to choose from, you are sure to find something that suits your needs and interests. You can also combine programmes to build your own schedule. Teaching blends classroom study with a series of theme-related plenary lectures and/or evening talks that will extend your knowledge of your chosen subjects and explore new ideas.
Interdisciplinary Summer Schools
If you are keen to study a variety of subjects the Interdisciplinary Summer School Term I and Interdisciplinary Summer School Term II would be the ideal programmes to choose. Participants select two or three courses from a wide range of topics. Term I runs for four weeks, Term II for two weeks. You attend classroom sessions in small groups which are complemented by a series of plenary lectures and/or evening lectures covering a variety of topics.
Specialist Summer Schools
If you would prefer to study a specific subject area in more depth, our specialist programmes may interest you. We offer programmes focusing on: Ancient Empires, Science, Literature, History, Shakespeare and Medieval Studies.
Each of our specialist Summer School programmes is two or four weeks in length, but participants can opt to come for one week only. You can also choose to combine two or three different programmes/terms to build your own schedule of two, three or more weeks in order to meet your needs and interests.
EAP and IELTS Summer Schools
We also run an English for Academic Purposes programme for second language students who are already proficient in English and are looking to perfect their skills. The programme combines a two-week intensive personalised language skills course with a two-week academic programme in either Shakespeare, Medieval Studies or Interdisciplinary Summer School Term II.
We will also be running an IELTS Preparation Course for students who are looking to improve their English language skills and test their abilities at the end of a three-week intensive programme.
