Summer School

What is Summer School

Simply put, a summer school is a programme of study supported by a school or school district during the summer vacation. Programmes generally take from 6 to 10 weeks, depending on the institution and the course of study. There are usually a wide variety of summer school courses taking place.

One may enrol on to a summer school out of an interest they have, to seek formal recognition of some kind, for professional training or in preparation for further education. The summer schools are open to all, unless otherwise stated.

Why to attend a summer school abroad

Those intending to study or work in a particular country will gain a unique opportunity to learn about and experience its culture, style of education and many other things. This will give you a chance to try new approaches to learning and expand your abilities. It will also give you the opportunity to adjust to the new country and settle down.

The experience will also make it easier for you to pursue your long-term course of study while away from your family. Upon successful completion of your chosen summer course, you will be able to apply for a long term, full time course with established universities.

How it will help you to build your career

Summer schools are highly regarded by employees and universities. They are not mandatory, so undertaking such a course shows a level of determination and drive on your part. They are available for those interested in making use of their time during the summer to develop their abilities and opportunities in the future.

By completing a summer school placement, you prove to yourself and others that you are capable of studying abroad. While you are abroad and away from your close family members, you also develop the confidence to get through and succeed without such support, enabling you to become more confident in any new environment.

How does summer school work

Summer school courses consist of lectures, seminars, and workshops for a group of around 15 students, all of whom learn together while creating enjoyable experiences. Most of our summer school courses are self-contained and do not require prior study, but some subject knowledge of the course is recommended.
