International Summer School 2007
University of Sussex, UK
|Scholarship / Financial aid: a limited number of scholarships is available for students from developing countries|
Date: there are two, four-week sessions, the first starting at the end of June
Deadline: 1 April 2007
Open to: all interested
The Summer School runs for eight weeks starting in late June, providing a wide range of intensive courses for credit in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, with more than 70 courses to choose from. In the summer we also have English language courses for students from non-English-speaking countries, including advanced English language for academic/professional purposes.
Courses run for four weeks, and you take one course at a time. A standard four-week course carries 18 Sussex credits. Two four-week courses in succession carry 36 Sussex credits. You can attend the Summer School for either four weeks or the full eight weeks. All students are housed on campus in single study-bedrooms with shared kitchens and bathrooms.
You will be able to enjoy the exciting seaside resort of Brighton, the beautiful South Downs countryside surrounding the University campus, while London is an hour away by rail. Although the core of the Summer School is its students, faculty and courses, other aspects – the beach, restaurants, theatre, local history and English pubs – are all part of an exciting summer at Sussex.
The Summer School organises a number of social events, trips and films. At the beginning and end of each session of the Summer School there will be welcome and farewell receptions – an opportunity to meet other students, faculty, and Sussex students who act as aides during the summer session. We also organise dozens of smaller events each session, ranging from Karaoke night at the King and Queen pub in Brighton (a favourite) to organised walks on the nearby Sussex Downs, to sea kayaking on a Sunday morning off the Brighton Pier. These events are a great opportunity to socialise with other Summer School students outside of class, and to experience British life (such as going for a pub lunch) and what the surrounding area has to offer.
