Summer Schools


In an increasingly competitive labour market, students who demonstrate international knowledge and understanding, and possess an international profile, are more employable. Global competencies such as cultural awareness, language skills, and personal adaptability are valued by employers.

International academic and cultural experiences can help broaden your horizons and allow discipline based academic theories to be compared with practice. In addition, it will also enable you to have greater confidence in assessing how business and trade is conducted in other countries.

Delivery date:

7 July - 20 July 2024
