Warwick Summer School 2017

Our first London based Summer School built on the success of our previous Summer Schools delivered at Warwick's campus between 2014 and 2016. In 2017 we welcomed 150 students from over 30 countries to St Mary's University in London with 100% of students saying they would recommend the programme. Students enjoyed a fun social programme which included day-trips, events and activities throughout the three weeks to independently visit the UK and experience British culture.

Students joined us for a variety of events including our meet and greet BBQ, welcome dinner at Raven's Ait island, curry, quiz and karaoke night and farewell celebration evening on the final day, with many also choosing to participate in our additional trips to the Apollo Victoria Theatre, London and the London Eye, Oxford and Brighton. Find out more about the social programme we are offering for our 2018 Warwick Summer School.
