Summer schools

Project International is an established provider of International Summer Schools in the UK and has attracted students from all over the world.

Our aim is to provide an experience that is:

  • Educational
  • Recreational
  • Social
  • Cultural

We want to fill these experiences with happy memories where new international friendships are formed and fostered.

We ensure that the students are occupied morning, afternoon and evening. There is constantly something new to try and experience and our emphasis is always on fun and all-round enjoyment. We have found over the years this makes for a truly memorable programme.

More information on our summer schools for 2019 can be found below.
