Summer School at the University of York, UK

The Summer Schools team at the University of York are delighted to share that our 2024 summer school offering is now live on our website and open for applications.

This year, for learners aged 18+ we are offering an English Language, British Culture and Intercultural Skills Summer School. The programme is an intensive two-week language and cultural immersion programme with a focus on cross-cultural communicative skills, taught by experienced tutors from the Global Opportunities team at our prestigious Russell Group University.

The programme aims to:

  • Strengthen students’ English language skills through a communicative and functional language based approach
  • Broaden cultural horizons and enhance students’ intercultural competence
  • Develop and demonstrate in-demand and transferable professional skills for students’ future career or studies

As with all our programmes, students will benefit from a safe and supportive multicultural campus environment, a rich schedule of cultural trips and activities, unique University of York components and optional campus accommodation.

Applications now open and students can take advantage of an early bird discount for any applications submitted before midnight (GMT) on the 29th March.

Full details can be found on our York Global Summer Schools webpages. Please spread the word by sharing this with your students.
