The 2014 International Summer School programme at the University of Exeter takes place between 5 and 26 July. All details are available online as well as in the brochure.
The programme includes 8 courses from a range of subject areas:
- English: Shakespeare and His World
- Environmental Sciences: Global Climate Change: Environment, Technology and Society
- History: Britain and the Making of the Modern World, King Arthur: Investigating the Myth and the Legend
- Law: English Law and the Era of Globalisation
- Management: Global Enterprise
- Politics and Security Studies: International Relations: Security, Conflict and Peace
- Sports and Health Sciences: Preventative Medicine: Exercise and the Environment
The programme is accredited at 15 Exeter credits and 7.5 ECTS – the equivalent to our semester modules, is taught by Exeter faculty and assessed to the same standards as our 2nd or final year UG degree modules. Our teaching has the same ethos as our undergraduate programmes and we encourage active learning through participation, take an inter-disciplinary approach to each subject and limit class sizes. Students have full access to our facilities and are expected to undertake 2 hours of guided independent study or group work each day to keep up with the pace of the course.
During their time in Exeter students stay in Holland Hall on the main campus take part in a social programme which involves a number of events in Exeter and daytrips to some iconic destinations in the South-West of England. The programme also features a 3 day orientation weekend in London on arrival so that students can acclimatise to the UK and get to know their fellow students before travelling to Exeter for the academic programme.
The programme fee includes tuition, accommodation plus breakfast and dinner, social events and day trips at weekends and is £2,445. The closing date for applications is 30 April 2014 and we also offer a number of partial scholarships awarded on academic merit.
