What is a Summer School?

A summer school is a form of education provided by universities, international colleges and private enterprises during the summer vacation, with courses usually lasting one to eight weeks. Students usually engage in full-time intensive classes related to a chosen subject and have the option to attend extracurricular activities designed to encourage socialisation and stimulate cultural awareness. Summer schools offer courses that may aid students in revising a subject studied during the previous academic year, further exploring a known subject, or discovering a new interest.
