The staff team are always passionate, optimistic and beyond enthusiastic. The students are always from incredibly varied backgrounds, from all corners of the world, are extremely intelligent and ridiculously talented. When you combine the two forces, magic is just bound to happen. The happy vibes are contagious and the laughter is inevitable. I look back fondly on 5 incredible summers with ISSOS, and am so fortunate to have met and made some friends that turned into flatmates, pen-pals, and travel companions. Thanks for the memories, and the experience of a lifetime!

I thought I would work at ISSOS for one summer, but I have been there for six. Why? Because I love it. It's fun, the people are amazing, the students inspiring and for me it has had a massively positive impact on my confidence and teaching ability. This is an amazing place for anyone interested in working with young people. The knowledge, confidence and experience you will gain is invaluable and you will meet amazing people who will inspire you and become friends for life.

Its a community built on fostering relationships and understanding of one another which feels amazing to be a part of.

Before my first summer at ISSOS I had no idea what to expect. What ensued was honestly the best summer of my entire life. Being exposed to people from around the world each of whom with their own unique background and story, taking on academic challenges with my students to improve their educational skills and world views, and participating in creative and entertaining activities are just some of my favourite things that take place at ISSOS. It is amazing how close you become to the people at ISSOS in just a few weeks. I wouldn't give up the experiences I had at ISSOS for anything!

I had a fantastic summer at ISSOS St Andrews. I already knew St Andrews well but couldn’t dream of a better place to hold a summer school. It is a remarkably safe and vibrant town, close to the sea and nature, and it enjoys a rich history linked to the university and golf. ISSOS is an incredibly inspiring programme, where passionate staff and enthusiastic students gather together to share an experience that is educational, social, and really fun. Students definitely learn a lot from ISSOS, but I have too.

Film Teacher

Education works both ways. I went to ISSOS to teach and ended up learning lots. My prejudices were challenged and the kids there blew my mind with the themes they were ready to tackle in their films and the maturity with which they did. Of course the staff, management and general family-feel made the whole experience more like a holiday than like a job, but as we sat in the theatre watching the students' finished films I knew we had done something special that would follow these young people into their future.
