Join us in summer 2023 and get a taste of what it means to study at a top university in the UK.
Pre-university Summer School
Our high school programme is open to international students aged 16-18 who are planning to enter higher education.
We offer a great combination of academic study options, skills development sessions and free time activities, including field trips, day trips, sightseeing and a lot more.
Undergraduate Summer School
Our university level programme includes a choice of study modules informed by the University’s research, talks by leading academics, an introduction to the York Strengths Employability Skills programme, academic skills sessions as well as free time activities.
We offer a year-round short courses and summer schools in York for groups of students or staff from universities around the world. If you'd like to develop a bespoke short course for your students or staff 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.
We've been running successful bespoke short courses for over 15 years. They last from one to 16 weeks and can include the following themes:
Our summer schools are themed around an academic discipline. They involve lectures and seminars led by leading York academics in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and sciences and technology.
Courses also include in-depth seminars, and practical participation by students, as well as visits to related places of interest for further study. Our teaching team provides academic skills support.
We can arrange all aspects of the participant’s stay, from airport collection to accommodation and catering. We can arrange accommodation on campus, with local host families or in city centre hotels.
We also run a course for staff looking at the issues around the internationalisation of higher education.
