Online Summer School Overview

In April 2021, we hosted a Global Studies Symposium, which covered six days of lessons, activities and keynotes, where 1,021 students came together to form a part of this unique community. 

We know that online learning is not the same as being in person, but we are now fully prepared to deliver our best online course to date. Please take a moment to watch our Summer School 2020 and our April Symposium videos to find out what our students have to say about their experiences. 

The online Summer School will take place this year from July 5th - July 18th. It will feature academic lessons across two weeks in addition to virtual excursions, keynote speakers and co-curricular activities.

Although the timetable is yet to be finalized, please see the programme guide below for further information.

Each Academic Lesson will be delivered twice per day, so your programme can be as flexible as you need it to be, based on your time zone and your schedule. The classes will comprise of a pre-recorded video introduction from the teachers, as well as reading material and resources relating to each subject.
