Summer school

Together with our partner universities around the world, we offer summer schools for groups of students, usually 1-2 weeks long. Most of the programmes mix academic activities, community outreach, student collaborations and cultural immersion. A summer school is a great way to expand your world, add to your CV and build lasting connections. 

For the summer 2020 LJMU are sending students to Colombia, European partners, India, and Indonesia. These will be funded programmes, meaning the cost of flights, accommodation and most activities will be covered by LJMU.

Most of the summer schools are open to all Level 4 and 5 students who have previously not gone on a summer school abroad with LJMU. To find out more come to one of our information sessions:

  • Tuesday 3 March 2020 - Redmonds Building Lecture Theatre 1
  • Wednesday 4 March 2020 - Byrom Street BS/102

You can also attend one of our drop-in and application clinics in the Careers Zones:

  • Byrom Street - Tuesday 1.00 - 3.00pm

"My trip to Shanghai was the best two weeks of my life. Never again will I get such an opportunity to immerse myself in Chinese culture. Armed with our new international experience, we all feel ready to take on the world of employment after graduation with new perspectives and understanding."
