Summer school growing in numbers and diversity

This year sees another summer of growth for Leeds International Summer School (LISS) with over 100 students participating in the four-week programme aimed at International and EU Undergraduates.

LISS plays a key role in supporting the University’s commitment to internationalisation, and through exchange relationships, allows more of our students to take up study abroad opportunities at our partner institutions.

The diversity of the programme is one of its greatest successes; this year’s students come from universities in Australia, Canada, China, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Iraq, Japan, Nigeria, Korea, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand and the USA.

This year the expanded programme of 14 two-week modules will include the addition of ‘Renewable Energy Systems: The Big Debate’, ‘Creative Writing: Travel and Journalism’ and ‘Introduction to Digital Photography’.

We are seeking to expand the summer school by extending the range of modules available in 2018. Getting involved with LISS helps schools demonstrate commitment to the international strategy and strengthen partnerships and collaboration with universities around the world. LISS also gives staff the opportunity to adapt their scholarship and teaching to a diverse, international audience of students. 

If you are interested in finding out more about delivering a module in 2018 please get in touch with Lisa Beare, the LISS Manager.
