Our top-quality academic summer school programmes are designed to cater specifically to the needs of international students. 

Students choose one academic subject, which they will pair with one of our elective classes, to focus on for the 3 weeks at ISSOS. All academic classes meet for 3 hours each weekday morning and are taught by our highly qualified team of teaching staff who are all experienced, working professionals in their subject areas.

We offer limited places at ISSOS as a whole and in our classes so that our students feel part of the community and can benefit from plenty of individual attention from their teachers.
