Teacher helping students at summer schoolThese topics capture only a sample of the expertise available; we encourage dialogue with institutions that are interested in joining our Summer Schools so that subject matter can be best tailored to demand, and content can be matched to student requirements.

All courses will be taught in English. Courses are not currently credit-rated; participating institutions may wish to award credit for activities undertaken during the Summer School or from subsequent reflective accounts or reports. Certificates of completion will be awarded to attendees to formally certify their participation for incorporation into portfolios or resumés.

We welcome dialogue with institutions who may wish to use the Summer School as an opportunity to deliver their own teaching programmes on the York St John University campus, with or without the cultural programme as best fits your particular needs.
