International Summer School 2016

Did you know that the online application form for the University of Glasgow’s 2016 International Summer School goes live on 1 December?

The Summer School is an excellent way of experiencing what it’s like to study at an international university. It is a unique opportunity to focus on and explore a particular topic in more depth and to experience teaching from world-class academic staff. Summer study allows students who are 18 or over and who are enrolled at a Higher Education Institution to supplement their studies and gain international experience and credits at a world-class university.

If you are currently a visiting or international student you may want to think about the Summer School as a way of building on your experience of Glasgow as a place to study. Or perhaps recommend it to your friends and your home universities as a way of gaining insight into what it’s like to study in another country whilst sampling the culture.

The 2016 International Summer School starts on 20th June 2016 and runs over 8 weeks in total incorporating courses drawn from across the Colleges. Most are three weeks long, Functional Anatomy is a four week course and The International Physics Summer School runs for eight weeks. Successful completion will earn students 15, 20 or 30 credits. Generally the courses are awarded 7.5 ECTS in the European system.

Students from partner institutions will receive a 10% discount on the International Summer School fee at enrolment.
