The Summer School experience

London is a great student city ranked top by the QS Best Student Cities 2019. London really comes alive in the summer months and as a student on our Summer School you will have plenty of opportunities to make the most of what the city has to offer.

Every year we organise a programme of social events to allow you to get to know your fellow Summer School students, from across the ten different modules that we run. Previous organised activities have included a bus tour of London on a classic Routemaster London double decker, river cruise on the Thames and visit to a traditional London pub. Being based in central London our students take advantage of the many attractions a short walk from campus. Some local attractions within easy walking distance include:

Then if you want to explore further afield in London, just hop on the tube at one of our local stations or hire a Santander bike from the rack at the end of Bunhill Row.

Guest speakers

Our well connected academics regularly use their London contacts to bring in guest speakers for the whole summer school cohort to experience more about current business issues in general. Recent speakers have included Marco Boldini who at the time was Head of Financial Services Regulatory (Legal) Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe LLP and Suchitra Nair Director EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy at Deloitte. Guest speaker lectures by our senior alumni and advisory board members are also scheduled regularly throughout the programme.
