What our students say
“One of the best summers of my life! The courses were intensive, challenging and highly enjoyable!”
Marie Tredaniel, France (Interdisciplinary Programme)
“In the introduction talk you said that your goal was to change lives, and in my case you definitely succeeded. I will hopefully be returning next year, and will definitely be recommending it to others.”
Blanaid Barr, Northern Ireland (Literature)
“Classes are rich and rewarding in their variety and depth; plenary lectures are stimulating and fun; the international, intergenerational student body is a delight… It's no wonder students return year after year.”
Ben Wiley, USA (Interdisciplinary Programme)
“The International Summer Programme is the most wonderful thing I have ever taken part in. I have learned more in the past two weeks than in the past two years! Thank you for this opportunity!”
