University of Cambridge
2001 International Summer Schools

Summer programmes have been held at the University of Cambridge since the end of the 19th century, and the first specialised course of study for overseas visitors was held in 1923.  Applicants are undergraduate and graduate students seeking credit towards studies at their home institutions.  Teachers and faculty also attend, recognising an opportunity to refresh and develop their own professional knowledge and expertise.

Eight different Summer Schools offered by the University of Cambridge.  You can choose to study for two, three or four weeks by attending one Summer School, or you may prefer to extend your studies in Cambridge to five or six weeks by combining two Summer Schools.

All teaching for the Summer Schools is in English.  Applicants must satisfy themselves that their English is of a standard high enough for them to be able to understand and follow argument presented in fluent English at university level.

Certificate of completion: Evaluation, credit and certificates are important for many of the participants.  You will be awarded a certificate of completion if you fulfil the attendance and, on request, confirmation of your contact hours can be provided.  The International Summer Schools do not operate their own system of credit, but you may obtain credits for completed work and course attendance through universities in the United States and a number of other countries.
