Summer school courses in the UK provide the perfect learning environment for students preparing to study in the UK for the first time.
Some Summer Schools are provided by universities and can be a brilliant way to experience an authentic UK education environment with a lower cost than a full degree. Designed for undergraduates, the best of these provide academic credits that can be transferred and offer you a lifelong link to the institution you choose and the potential to return for further study with discounted fees.
Summer courses will help build your existing knowledge of a subject or introduce you to it for the first time. Because of this, many courses are available at an introductory or advanced level, and minimum entry requirements are not always. Summer courses last between one to five weeks during the months of June, July and August, and accommodation, meals and social trips and activities are also provided.
All of the below schools are carefully selected and fully certified by the British Council.
