Who are the Summer Schools for?

The credit-bearing Canterbury Summer School courses are designed for students or professionals who are either thinking about studying on a postgraduate degree programme in the UK or who simply wish to benefit from a short and intensive international study experience.

Our Biology (Biotechnology and Molecular Biology and IVF) and Quantitative Research courses require some previous study and knowledge whereas our other courses require a keen interest in the subject matter and previous study or knowledge is desirable but not essential.

The courses are taught over two weeks with a total of two weekends and 10 study days all at our Canterbury campus.

You might be based outside of the UK and looking to gain an experience overseas before you decide on your longer-term study options or you might be already studying in the UK and looking to try out another area of study that interests you.
