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:
- History & Culture
The Barbican, LSO at St Luke's, St Paul's Cathedral, Shoreditch Street Art
- Food & Drink
Whitecross Street Market, Look Mum No Hands, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
Spitalfields Market, Boxpark Shoreditch, Brick Lane, One New Change
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.
