What is the Imperial Global Summer School?

Our Summer School is your chance to live, learn and have fun in the heart of London at a university ranked eighth best in the world. Watch our video to hear what students thought of the Summer School 2015. 

During the Summer School students can:

  • learn from world-class academics and researchers
  • study alongside students from all over the world
  • work on challenging, real-world projects, developing your subject knowledge and honing your business skills

The Summer School isn’t all about work – you will also be able to explore London and other parts of the UK through our programme of social activities. This may include, for example:

  • day trips to famous UK cities
  • team building tasks
  • parties
  • London tours and theatre shows

When and where

  • 27 June to 9 July and 8 to 20 August 2016

The Summer Schools take place at our South Kensington Campus in the heart of London. This is close to major international airports and served by three Tube lines.

Summer School students will stay in our student accommodation in South Kensington, typically in twin rooms sharing with another Summer School student of the same gender.
