International Summer School

Itinerary

Here at Southampton International Summer School, we combine prime classroom teaching with educational trips and a generous amount of free time for students to immerse themselves in true English history and culture at their own leisure, with like-minded students from across the world.

We typically spend the first day holding induction classes, in which we welcome all new students and provide an exclusive tour around campus and accommodation. Classes are 3 hours long and take place in the morning and afternoon a few days each week, along with assessment introductions and up to 7 fantastic fun days out on our excursions in between. These include, the New Forest National Park, Stonehenge, Avebury Manor and Gardens, Isle of Wight, Winchester, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the many famous sights of London.

Throughout the four weeks, we hold two quiz nights with the first on Wednesday 21 July and the second on Thursday 5 August. Our quizzes are a fantastic opportunity for students to learn not only about Britain, but to get to know others outside of the classroom environment and learn about different cultures, learn a new language and even make friendships that’ll last a lifetime.

From Friday 30 July to Monday 2 August, students attending the four week course are given a long weekend to explore the local and surrounding area. Situated centrally with excellent transport links, students are able to visit a plethora of bustling cities, traditional coastal towns and peaceful countryside.

Assessments take place on the last day, with the two week students on Friday 30 July and the four week students on Friday 13 August. Both assessments will be followed by a party, which is usually a BBQ filled with food cooked by our fantastic on-site catering team and held on campus grounds or in one of our stunning nearby country parks.
