International Summer School


Due to the ongoing development of the COVID-19 outbreak, both in the UK and worldwide, and out of concern for the health and safety of students and staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the International Summer School 2020.

We appreciate this is disappointing news, however we are already making plans for the 2021 International Summer School, and we hope to see you there.

If you have already made an application and/or paid for the 2020 programme, please check your email inbox for further information.


The International Summer School offers you the opportunity to study and live on campus at the University of Liverpool, in the vibrant and friendly city of Liverpool, voted student's choice for best City Life in the UK by WhatUni? in 2018.

Study with fellow students from all around the world, choosing to take a 3-week or 6-week programme in June and July 2021. We offer credit-bearing modules from across all three faculties to provide a diverse programme.

Modules are grouped into themed pathways such as Global Grand Challenges, Liverpool DNA and Doing Business, meaning you can choose to concentrate your studies within one pathway or alternatively pick and mix modules to suit your needs. 

Take advantage of our brilliant social programme too, with excursions and activities throughout your time here. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

Join us, and have the time of your life in Liverpool in 2021!
