International Summer School

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

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 over the world, choosing to take a 3-week or 6-week programme in June and July 2021. We offer credit-bearing 15 credit modules and 5 credit modules grouped into themed pathways, so you can focus in one academic area or use pathways to suit your needs. It's your choice.

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

Choice. Speciality. Opportunity.

For 2021, we have worked hard to develop the International Summer School to make it the best ever. From developing new, specialist 15 credit modules alongside our current 5 credit modules, to a new English Communication Skills pathway and more, the 2021 International Summer School is more flexible and diverse than ever.

You can discover what's new in the 2021 International Summer School here.
