Exploring British Culture | Short course at the Summer School at Warwick University

Exploring British Culture Week

If you would like to extend your Summer School experience and would love the opportunity to engage with key themes in British culture through lectures, interactive seminars, and related cultural trips, then you should consider our additional Exploring British Culture Week. 

This week is available to a small group of students and is offered on a half board basis. It gives you the opportunity to live on our beautiful campus for an extra week and explore the UK including an overnight stay in the capital city of London.  

The key themes include Shakespeare, British history, and politics in the UK, all of which are supported by excellent teaching from Warwick staff and with a relevant field trip for each theme. Student ambassadors also support this programme, living alongside you for a week and joining you on trips and social activities. 

Students will also have the opportunity to grow more confident and competent in communicating in English and developing through engagement with an enterprise project. This will involve working in groups on pitching a sustainable start-up. Experts in business and sustainability will input on this project and provide group feedback to students.
