This is an educational program – many of you are seeking to earn 6 credits in the program. While you are expected to follow a schedule there is plenty of “room” to plan your own personal activities or join optional program activities.

Be open to learn and enjoy as much as you can. You will be in classes, but not always in a conventional way.

Embark on a journey of holistic development through our immersive summer program that unfolds in a secure and welcoming environment. We prioritise creating a friendly atmosphere that respects and celebrates the richness of individual experiences. London, a city known for its cultural diversity and inclusivity, serves as the backdrop for this transformative journey. Our commitment to fostering a secure and supportive atmosphere enables students to thrive academically and personally, knowing that their well-being is our top priority.

To support your learning, the program includes a mix of class meetings and required group activities.
