Module Choices

The International Summer School is built on our engaging sessions, led by dedicated academic staff. We offer a diverse range of modules which reflect the best of the University of Liverpool's teaching and reasearch areas, and pull in the unique culture of the city of Liverpool and surrounding areas.

You may wish to focus on a specific area such as management or social sciences, or you might wish to enjoy modules from across your spectrum of interests. Whatever you choose you will be in an international classroom, receiving small group teaching and feedback, and the opportunity to widen your studies through access to the full facilities of the University.

For every 3 weeks you study, you will select 3 x 5 credit modules. Not all combinations are available- you will be invited to make your final selections during the application process.
