The University's International Summer Programmes (9 July - 19 August 2017) offer a heady mixture of tradition and innovation, as hundreds of students absorb the atmosphere of this remarkable place, learning from some of the finest academics, and from each other. The programmes have a reputation for excellent teaching, fascinating courses and intriguing lectures.

Over 170 courses make up eight open-access programmes: Ancient and Classical Worlds, Creative Writing, History, Interdisciplinary, Literature, Medieval Studies, Science and Shakespeare. We also offer an English Legal Methods Programme designed primarily for lawyers and law students.

At the core of each programme are small, special study classes. These are complemented by a series of plenary lectures and evening talks, delivered by subject specialists from within the University and beyond.

The programmes are taught at undergraduate level and attract adults of all ages, from over 50 different countries. Around 50% of participants are current undergraduate or gradúate students, and around 40-45% of all participants are aged 30+.

Applications open in December; our website will have full information about the programmes, dates, accommodation options and fees, along with details of how to apply Online:
