Summer School

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.

The Interfaculty Summer School from the Faculties of Health, Psychology and Social Care and the Faculty of Education 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.
