2024 programme dates

Global Summer School is structured in two parts. Week one begins with academic sessions focussed on your chosen subject and is followed by week two which includes working together with other students to participate in a enterprise challenge.  
Throughout the two-week programme, you will be taught by Imperial academics, across more than 50 hours of class time. Lessons are delivered in a variety of formats including lectures, seminars and practical sessions, enabling you to gain valuable insight into what it might be like to study your subject at degree level.  

Academic programme

In week one, with the choice of three subjects — Engineering, Medicine and Life Sciences or Physics  — you will increase your specialist subject knowledge, gain valuable skills and work with other outstanding students from around the world. 

Enterprise Challenge

In week two of the programme, you will come together with students from other academic subjects to share expertise and to help solve a real-world challenge.  
The Enterprise challenge is led by the Imperial Enterprise Lab, a group of industry experts, and is a chance for you to develop vital skills you will need at university such as presentation, communication and group work.
