Summer Schools



This course offered us an in-depth study and immersion in a really stimulating research environment. It is truly intercultural and, at the same time, an interdisciplinary experience, because, not only have I met significant scientists, but also I have learnt a lot about the different aspects of the region of Kent and the capital of the UK. For anyone coming to do this course; It’s going to be unforgettable! I recommend it to all of you without any hesitation!
