Applications for our Global Summer Schools are open!

Summer schools are open to all university students from outside of the UK to join us at Lancaster in the summer and offer an educational, cultural, and social experience. They are a great way to connect with people from around the world and experience a varied programme of lectures, group working, trips and social activity.

This year’s summer schools are:

- International Cultural Exchange - offers the chance for you to develop an understanding of the current issues and potential difficulties facing different communities in Britain.

- Film – offers a combination of lectures, screening and workshops. You will lean to analyse films, develop short scripts, work with cameras and edit.

- Environment and Sustainability - offers a mixture of interactive lectures, practical laboratory sessions and field excursions, this course is perfectly designed to build your knowledge of our natural environment, and the human impacts on it – with a focus on innovations in sustainability.

- International Commercial Law – aimed primarily at undergraduate law students, you will experience legal studies in English law and legal methods. You will also experience two nights in London exploring law in one of the global hubs of commercial law.

- Introduction to Law - Explore current legal issues and develop your awareness and understanding of the methods, processes and concepts that underpin University-level legal studies.

- War and Diplomacy - Explore the role played by individual, state and other actors in war and diplomacy in the specific learning environment provided by Lancaster’s Centre for War & Diplomacy.

As well as academic content, you will have opportunities to explore the UK with trips to The Lake District National Park, and historic towns and cities such as Chester, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

There are also optional social activities in in the evenings and at weekends where you can make friends, relax, enjoy sports, mindfulness, walks, baking, board games and more.
