International Summer School

The University of Liverpool International Summer School is now accepting applications for our summer 2021 online programme.

Choice. Speciality. Opportunity.

For 2021, we have made the decision to move the International Summer School online. We want to ensure that our students feel safe and secure in their summer plans, so as a result we are focusing on online delivery of a selection of our new 15 credit modules.

Online students will receive the same benefits that come with studying on-campus, but with the added flexibility that comes from studying online.

Study with fellow students from all over the world, choosing to take a 3-week or 6-week online programme in June and July 2021. We offer credit-bearing 15 credit modules so you can work in-depth on topics and work closely with our university academics.

Take advantage of our online social programme too, with activities and events throughout your time with us. There is something for everyone to enjoy!
