Students on the Warwick Summer School in London will be taught by leading UK academics, whilst living in the beautiful South West London suburb of Strawberry Hill. St Mary’s peaceful and self-contained campus is only 30 minutes from the heart of London, making this a unique “best of both worlds” experience.
In addition to the excellent academic courses, students will also enjoy lectures from inspirational guest speakers as well as a fun and engaging social programme. There will be plenty of time in the programme for students to explore central London and the local area. Students who attended the 2017 Summer School were overwhelmingly positive about their experience, with 100% of them saying they would recommend it to others.
