The exclusive summer program of ISSOS, offers high school students (aged 13-18) the unique opportunity to combine learning, creative enrichment and action-packed adventure in the world renowned and stunning university town of St Andrews.

At the ISSOS we believe that each student deserves to discover their potential and acquire the skills, confidence and motivation to make things happen and bring about change. An exciting series of interactive workshops, energetic summer school activities and fun-filled challenges specifically designed to inspire and enable each and every student to uncover their unique abilities, develop greater confidence and master strategies for success in the classroom and beyond.
What will it cover?
Our Youth Leadership summer school course gives students the opportunity to discover their own potential by developing interpersonal and leadership skills, increasing their self-confidence and acquiring the motivation and ability to bring about change.
