Spend your summer becoming part of a world-class university!

When you join the International Summer School 2019, you are booking your place to become part of an internationally recognised centre for world-class research, enterprise and learning. Across four weeks, 15 July to 9 August 2019, you will meet many of the students and staff that make the University of Southampton one of the top 100 of universities globally.

Mixing with students and staff from across the world in the classroom, as you make the most of our modern campus facilities, or while you are relaxing in your comfortable hall of residence, you'll make friends and gain experiences to take home that are unique.

You'll explore the UK and its culture and heritage - both through exciting study in the classroom and on the road in the many trips and excursions.

You will take home fond memories of a cultural experience rooted in the hundred-year tradition of one of the UK's top universities.
