What is a Summer School?
Quite simply it’s taught classes, at a University abroad during the Summer.
It won’t all be study. Social events will often be organised and you’ll be spending time studying and hanging out with other students from all over the world.
Do something great with your Summer – give your CV an international flavour and experience student life at one of many exciting, international universities.
Depending on where you go and what you study, you’ll get a different perspective on the subject you’re studying or it can be a chance to pick up and try a completely new topic.
Not only will you get the chance to spend your Summer in Europe but you can even pick up academic credit for the courses you take.
Choose the right Summer School for you. Research your options and find the School that most suits the degree programme you’re studying at Edinburgh Napier University.
Talk to your Programme Leader, let them know you’re thinking of going and chat about what could be done with some of the academic credit that you could get.
Let the Global Mobility
team at Edinburgh Napier know that you’re applying by emailing email@example.com

What’s the catch?
There is none. But it’s not free. All Summer Schools are competitively priced to make it as affordable as possible for all participants. Look carefully at the costs before completing your application and investigate other possible sources of funding support.
