Summer Schools are a unique opportunity to sample the lifestyle, culture and experiences of life in another city.

An outstanding opportunity to develop skills and experiences, understand different perspectives and cultures whilst enriching your educational knowledge and aspirations.

What is the Interfaculty Summer School?

The interfaculty Summer School from the Faculties of Health, Psychology and Social Care and the Faculty of Education in 2017 provides a superb opportunity to visit the UK’s most popular student city. Suitable for all undergraduate students, this two-week programme will enable students to enhance their leadership skills, developing creative approaches for the delivery of interdisciplinary learning in Social Care and Urban Education.

The programme, a non-credit bearing summer school, delivered by a series of lectures, workshops and fieldtrips to local community organisations, will enable students to benefit from working alongside their peer group of international delegates whilst experiencing the vibrant academic life offered by our central Manchester location.

When is the Summer School?

Our 2017 Summer School will be running from Monday 24th July to Friday 4th August 2017 based at the Brooks Building, Manchester Metropolitan University campus. A typical day will run from 09.30-16.30 with a break for lunch. A final programme of activities will be sent to all successful applicants in early June 2017.

We do anticipate a high level of interest in this programme, so please be advised that our application window will close on the 5th May 2017, after which we will not process any further applications. Places will be offered subject to fulfilling our terms and conditions and applicants will be advised on the progress of their application by email.‌ ‌

‌“The Interfaculty Summer School is a programme specifically designed to develop student’s leadership skills in the field of social entrepreneurship.
