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 2018 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.
