With a history stretching back over thousands of years, England's capital London is full of world-class tourist attractions, cultural and historic landmarks, top restaurants, beautiful open spaces and brilliant shopping as well as being one of the most diverse and exciting cities in the world. Our Summer School includes a day trip to London and tickets for the London Eye and river cruise as part of the tuition fee.

Students are able to debate and discuss issues with renowned academics such as Professors Abhinay Muthoo and Franklyn Lisk. We also attract top guest speakers and offer interactive sessions with eminent public figures. Nobel Prize winner George Akerlof, the former Cabinet Secretary and Head of the UK Civil Service Lord Gus O Donnell and eminent economist Lord Robert Skidelsky have all spoken in previous years.
