Summer schools

For two-language students who prefer to spend a full academic year in the country of their first language, or three-language students who only have the summer in which to spend time in the country of their third language, links have been established as follows, where we can recommend the summer school:

Arabic

The International House – Cairo is a good institute if you are thinking to enhance your Arabic skills over the summer. Our tutors made a field visit to the institute in August 2015 and met with the management, tutors, and interviewed students of different levels. They attended classes and assessed the institute’s Arabic books. According to our tutors, the teaching, facilities, and services are very good and the staff are extremely friendly. Please see the link below for further details. If you decide to go there, the institute offers Warwick students a special package. You can get in touch with our tutors and they will coordinate your study trip with the management.
