Summer schools and short courses for partner universities

We offer a range of year-round short courses and summer schools in York for groups of students or staff from partner universities around the world. If you're from a partner university and you'd like to develop a bespoke course we'd welcome the opportunity to work with you and discuss your specific requirements.

Our courses are designed to provide participants with an international experience in an increasingly globalised workplace, and encourage further student international mobility.
