International Summer School



Welcome Events

To help you settle and enjoy your time at the International Summer School, the ISS team have organised fabulous welcome parties for all students. The first, for students joining us in Session 1, will be a meal on Saturday and a Sunday summer party with traditional English fete themed games, delicious food and music.

The second event will be a festival themed dinner for all Session 2 students.


If you love to sing your heart out; on stage or in the shower, come down to East Slope Bar and show 'em what you've got! Choose your favourite song and let your hair down as you sing along.

Sports Nights

These evenings are a great way to break the ice with new friends. With a different sport each week there is something for everyone! Get involved, whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro. Meet at the Sports Centre from 5-7pm for each activity. Qualified university staff will be leading all sessions.

Session 1, 22 June: Volleyball

Session 1, 29 June: Badminton

Session 1, 6 July: Table Tennis

Session 2, 20 July: Football (Soccer)

Session 2, 27 July: Quidditch

Pub Quizzes

Put your knowledge to the test with our themed pub quizzes! Held every Wednesday, it's the perfect place to unwind with friends and show off just how many useless facts you know. Prizes will be given to the highest scoring team each week.

Farewell Ceremony

Having studied with us for four or eight weeks we would like to say goodbye in style! As such we are putting on a free Farewell Ceremony at the end of Session 1 (for Session 1 only students) and Session 2 (for Session 1 and 2, and session 2 only students). The event will be a dinner with speeches from invited guests, competition prize giving and a presentation from the ISS staff. This is your chance to celebrate all you've achieved at summer school and say your final goodbyes to all the wonderful friends you've made.

More details will be made available closer to the time of the events.
