What is the International Summer School?

The International Summer School is a free, online programme (via Microsoft Teams) focusing on various course areas offered at the University, consisting of a programme of academic activities, general sessions on applying to and studying in the UK and having contact with current students at the University. You will also be able to engage with your peers looking to studying a similar course to you.
