Summer time is the best time of year to explore London. Studying at Queen Mary University of London, you will have the opportunity to experience one of the greatest cities in the world. London is not just a capital city – the centre of British politics and governments – it is an international centre of excellence for business, culture and the arts. With more students than any other city in Europe, London is an extraordinary place to visit and study.
Taking a summer course at Queen Mary enables you to experience London at the best time of year whilst gaining an enriching academic experience. Our Summer School puts you in charge of what you study and we want to give you the broadest possible intellectual experience possible. You can specialise according to your own interests, knowing that each session will be thought-provoking, challenging and exciting in equal measure. If you’d like to combine an interest in particle physics with your love of horror films, you can. With courses on art, culture, law, politics, physics and film there really is something for everyone – check them out!
We have 2 sessions of study on offer, so you really can build your own summer programme and combine your interests. Our session dates are:
Session 1: 25 June – 13 July 2018
Session 2: 16 July – 3 August 2018
