Summer in Edinburgh

As you know from your time at the University, very few places are as vibrant and exciting as Edinburgh during the summer months.

Our new expanded Summer School programme is designed to combine top-class teaching with an exciting social programme that includes Gaelic language workshops, a traditional summer ceilidh and excursions within and outside the city.

The current programme includes a range of subjects and disciplines including Alternative Approaches to Macroeconomics, Business in the Arts, Culture and Society in the Scottish Enlightenment and Film Studies and the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Many of the courses offered include additional curriculum features.

Film Studies and the Edinburgh International Film Festival, for example, includes attending film premieres at the Festival, and the Beginners Swahili course includes the possibility of 4 weeks in Tanzania, where students will be learning the language and exploring the country.

Summer School Abroad

Our Summer School Abroad courses offer the opportunity to have an enriching international experience during the summer months at one of our overseas partner institutions. Academic staff will be from the host institution and may also feature some of the University’s own academics.
