Social Programme

Liverpool is a unique city with a fascinating culture. We also sit in a beautiful part of the world, with access to everything from castles to coasts, mountains, monuments and everything in between. Our social programme is carefully curated to give you a deep insight into UK and Liverpool culture, and see some stunning sights along the way.

We work hard to make sure there is something for everyone in the social programme. As well as a catered welcome event to meet your new classmates, an evening meal, and city tour with a free drink in a local cafe/ bar, we offer trips including a one-day trip in each 3-week programme.  Examples of these are:

  • Coach trip to the Lake District and Wordsworth's Grasmere, which includes:
    • A visit to 'The loveliest spot that man hath ever found" (according to Wordsworth himself).
    • Lunch at Grasmere Village, with sightseeing at various stunning locations.
    • Visit to Rydal Hall Gardens, with Wordsworth's house next door
    • Boat trips or paddling in the Lake (if you dare!)

With Student Assistants on hand to lead or make a suggestion for a trip, as well as look after your day to day wellbeing, you won't be short of things to do or people to help you out. Included in your fee you can expect activities such as:

ISS students will also have access to the social activities organised by the Halls Experience Team, designed for everyone living in University accommodation.

Of course, you are not limited to the activities organised by us. There is so much to see and do in Liverpool, you won't be bored during your time with us. Head to our City Life page for help on exploring the city or see what our students have discovered in and around the city.

I could choose many words to describe that experience but one is enough, "opportunity". Opportunity to enter in a world that could join education and enjoyment all the time. Opportunity to experience unforgettable new places, new people and a new culture. Today I work at British Council Brazil, I owe a good part of this success to the International Summer School.
