Edinburgh Summer School 2024

Why Study at the University of Edinburgh’s Summer School?

There are lots of reasons to choose Edinburgh this summer…

Attending Summer School at the University of Edinburgh is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay, study and play in one of the most iconic cities in the world.

Ranked 22nd in the QS World University Rankings 2024, the University is a leader in teaching and research in a wide range of fields, including arts and humanities. Edinburgh is committed to providing an outstanding education to its students, emphasising critical thinking, creativity, and innovation.

There are a variety of academic benefits of attending summer school including gaining a competitive edge before starting or continuing your university studies (depending on whether you are taking a Pre-university or credit course), increasing your subject-specific knowledge, and developing your critical thinking skills. All of our Summer School programmes are taught by our dedicated, talented University of Edinburgh teaching staff.

Summer School is also a great way to build your CV or resumé. A good tip is to make sure you take a class in a topic or industry you’re really interested in and ideally want to work in after graduating.

Attending Summer School offers you a routine, all whilst exploring an exciting new city and culture, making new friends from all over the world, and experiencing living away from home. In addition to a range of organised social activities, you'll have plenty of downtime scheduled into your timetable so you will still have time to relax, sightsee and make the most of your time in historic Edinburgh.

Join us this July and experience a summer to remember!
