International Summer School

A free, online programme for Year 12 (or equivalent) international students during which you can find out what it's like to be a student at the University.

What is the International Summer School?

The International Summer School is a one-week programme that aims to provide prospective international students with an insight into studying and student life at the University of Bath.


The International Summer School is a free, online programme focusing on five 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.

Successful completion of the programme will give access to a guaranteed conditional offer subject to conditions (see details below).

This year's summer school will take place from Monday 2 to Friday 6 August 2021.
