The University of Warwick Summer School 2018 (WSS) will be hosted in the iconic capital city of London. Our three-week Summer School provides a unique combination of learning and debating with renowned academics and high-profile guest speakers, living alongside your peers in a beautiful area of London and enjoying a fun and engaging social and cultural programme to give you a real taste of London.

Whether you are looking for a course to boost your existing knowledge or would like to gain knowledge in a new area, we have a course to suit you. Our exciting collaboration with St Mary’s University, London ensures we deliver the Summer School in a location which is hard to beat.

Applications for our 2018 Warwick Summer School (Sunday 15 July - Sat 4 August) are now open following our immensely successful and fun 2017 Summer School which saw students experiencing:

  • a taste of the University of Warwick's outstanding teaching;
  • the chance to engage with high profile academics and speakers and
  • the excitement of London life for a few weeks

We have an even wider range of courses on offer this year including Humanities and Computing subjects, along with our usual Social Sciences and Economics courses. All courses are taught by staff who are experts in their field.

We will be running our Summer School again from the beautiful self-contained campus of St Mary's, Twickenham enabling students to benefit from exceptional teaching, academic expertise and a social programme with our amazing capital city, London, on the doorstep.
