How to apply for International Summer School

Applications for the International Summer School 2021 will open in January 2021

Application process

When we receive your application, we’ll review it and check you meet the entry criteria. If you do, we’ll be delighted to send you an Offer Letter for our Summer School. You’ll also get a list of your pre-approved study modules and an Acceptance Form for you to formally accept our offer.

Please return your Acceptance Form so we can secure your modules and accommodation. We’ll then send you final orientation details and other useful information in our Summer School Student Handbook.

Once you have submitted the online application form, please email a copy of your transcript, passport (front cover and photo page), and a letter of recommendation to The letter of recommendation should be from a tutor or other notable person that can vouch for your suitability to study on the programme.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until classes are filled. Please submit your application and supporting documents as soon as possible.

Our entry requirements

You’ll be asked to provide your latest transcript, a letter of recommendation and a copy of your passport. You may also be asked to provide evidence of your English language proficiency (if English is not your first language).

Academic requirements

If you’re applying from a university in the USA or Canada you’ll need a GPA of 3.0 or above. Special circumstances may be taken into consideration if your GPA is slightly below this.

If you’re applying from elsewhere, you should have good pass grades equivalent to ECTS level ‘B’ or top 35% for courses taken.

English language proficiency

When you apply, you should be sufficiently fluent in English to get maximum benefit from our course modules. If English is not your first language, you’ll need to have passed one of these recognised tests and examinations:


Minimum pass level


6.0 (with 5.5 minimum in each skill)

Cambridge C1 Advanced (CAE)

169 with minimum of 162 in each skill

Cambridge C2 Proficiency (CPE)

180 with minimum 162 in each skill

Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE)

54 with 51 in each component


80 with no subtest less than 17

If you’re an exchange student, there may be an inter-university agreement for the recognition of your English Language ability. This may mean that admission is possible without having to sit or hold one of the above tests. Instead we would require an academic reference that would attest to your ability to attend classes and complete assignments in English. Check with your exchange co-ordinator to see if this applies to you.
