About the summer school

Combining an exciting mix of theory and practical work, our summer school will provide you with the opportunity to explore and develop your knowledge, skills and interests in the following subject areas:

  • Business
  • English and creative writing
  • French
  • Hospitality and tourism management
  • Law
  • Spanish.

You'll attend a variety of lectures, seminars and tutorials delivered by our academic staff, who are leading experts in these fields. And get the chance to speak with our current students and find out all about their experiences of university life.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet students with similar interests to you. In the evenings, you will be able to relax and unwind from your studies, get to know your new friends and enjoy a variety of activities both on campus and in Guildford, before turning in for the night in our residential halls on campus.
