Summer Schools offer short-term study options to explore UK life and its learning environment, preparing international students for higher education at UK universities. A quality education, a diverse range of courses, high level of industry engagement and the presence of numerous universities, colleges and higher study options has led to a massive influx of international students in the UK.
Summer School courses in the UK last one to five weeks and usually take place during the months of June, July and August. At an introductory level, summer schools help prepare students for entry on to UK university undergraduate courses, whereas at postgraduate level, summer school courses are useful for gaining insights into the latest trends and developments in specialised fields of study.
