Increasingly students need to acquire skills and experience outside of their classes in order to enhance their employability. Summer Schools are a wonderful opportunity to do this. They allow you to acquire a level of expertise in a topic, to learn from new teachers and to experience different learning techniques,  to meet students from other parts of the world, and to have a great time!

Below are some schools you may want to think about. They have different eligibility criteria, areas of interest, deadlines, etc. so do check out the websites carefully.

(In the same vein, think about doing a foreign language course abroad – see Alliance Francaise, Cervantes Institute or Goethe Institute).
