Social Programme

As part of your Global Summer School, you will enjoy a range of opportunities for you to make friends, try new skills, and travel across the UK!

Socialise and Explore

As well as the academic content, you will be able to choose from a wide range of social activities in the evenings and weekends. There will also be optional workshops and other resources where you can reflect on your own cultural background and explore new perspectives.

Explore the UK

Explore the UK's natural landscapes, busy metropolitans and historic towns visiting locations such as:

  • Chester
  • Liverpool
  • London
  • Manchester
  • The Lake District

Please note that some trips will be at an additional cost.

Evening Activities

We run regular social activities in the evenings for you to relax and make friends with students from across the summer schools. For larger groups, there will often be choices of activities between sports, games, or cultural activities. Here are some examples from previous years:

  • Make friends over a game of basketball, football or cricket
  • Relax with mindfulness and yoga
  • Walk and talk through our peaceful woodland
  • Bake delicious treats
  • Play strategy board games
