What can I do when I am not studying?

Our packed evening and weekend social programme will help you enjoy your time in London to the full! With a range of activities both on and off campus, you will have the opportunity to explore London and beyond alongside other Global Summer School students and our team of Pastoral Mentors.

The following is a guide to the type of activities that our social programme typically includes:

On and off campus activities

On-campus activities

After a busy day in the classroom, you’ll be able to take part in a range of evening activities to relax with your friends. This includes:

  • Sports activities including football, badminton and gym classes in our Ethos Sports Centre.
  • Take part in a talent show. Whether it’s singing, playing an instrument, telling jokes or simply supporting others, you’ll be able to get to know other students on your course during this fun-filled evening.
  • Test your general knowledge in our informal ‘pub-style’ quiz.
  • Arts and crafts activities.
  • Board games.

Off-campus excursions

We offer a variety of off-campus trips to give you a taste of life in London and beyond, including:

  • A trip to a West End musical.
  • Shopping in Westfield, Europe’s largest shopping centre.
  • Day trip to Brighton, a traditional English seaside town where you can explore the seafront, historic pier or shopping lanes.
  • Visits South Kensington’s museums and galleries including the Science Museum, Natural History Museum and V&A.

Free time

Before and after class or organised activities, you will be free to relax with friends in the halls of residence. However, we believe that you will get the most out of the Summer School by fully immersing yourself, so you should expect to be engaged in team activities for the majority of the day under the supervision of our mentors.
