Being able to adapt to change and a new setting is an important part of the working world, and life in general. These traits are valued by employers, along with flexibility, cultural sensitivity and the ability to work effectively with a range of people for example.
- Build an international network
Taking part in a summer school programme will enable you to meet people from across the world, who could be valuable connections in the future.

You could discover iconic historical sites such as the Taj Mahal, Medellin and the Leshan Giant Buddha whilst immersing yourself in a new culture.

A range of language courses such as Spanish in Medellin or Mandarin in Shanghai are available on top of other modules.
