Benefits of attending International Summer School
Develop academic skills
The summer school environment, with its intensive tuition and small study groups, is geared towards helping students develop valuable academic skills that are vital for university success. This could be anything from being able to engage in academic arguments and debates, right down to practical skills such as essay writing and exam taking technique.
Unique educational environment
A summer school offers a very special educational environment; one that allows students’ scholarly sides to flourish. In a summer school, you’re in an academic bubble away from normal school deadlines, and you’re surrounded by other people who are just as interested in learning as you are .
Demonstrating your enthusiasm
Attending a summer school is a great way to demonstrate your enthusiasm for a subject to the universities you intend to apply for. Not only will it look good on your university application if you’ve attended a summer school ,but you’ll also be better prepared to write an interesting personal statement, with insightful comments about your experience. A summer school can also help equip you with the skills and knowledge you need in order to shine at interview.
A stronger CV
You can put on your CV that you’ve attended an academic summer school, listing some of the skills it taught you, as well as how it helped you perform better academically.
Access to better universities
Because of the knowledge and skills you’ll pick up on your summer school, and the valuable preparation it can offer for university, you’ll potentially have access to better universities, with better grades and a stronger application with which to apply to the top ones. This has a direct impact on your CV, as being able to put a very well-respected university on your CV will create a favourable impression with a potential employer.
Summer schools help develop transferable skills – that is, skills that can be usefully employed in different environments, such as the workplace. An example of a transferable skill might be what’s commonly known as ‘people’ skills, or the ability to interact well with other people. This is a vital life skill and particularly important in a job setting. Other examples of transferable skills might be time management, organisation and written English skills – all things you’ll need and improve on a summer school.
An edge over your peers
With so much competition for university places and then jobs, it can be difficult to make your CV stand out from the crowd. Attending a summer school adds a valuable extra string to your bow, with many benefits you can talk about in your university or job application. In a marketplace in which universities or employers may see dozens of applications from similarly qualified applicants, your attendance at a summer school could mean the difference between a successful application and an unsuccessful one, simply because it differentiates you with added skills and experience.
Make new friends
Summer Camps enable you to make lots of new friends. The small tuition groups and residential nature of a summer school allow you to get to know your fellow students both in the classroom and outside it, and many students find they form firm friendships with their coursemates. What’s more, summer schools are often attended by students from all over the world, resulting in a cosmopolitan environment and friendships formed with people of many nationalities.
Develop social skills
Summer schools typically offer tuition in small groups, a setting in which even the more shy students are able to speak out and offer their ideas and opinions to a group discussion. Mixing with peers from all walks of life and multiple nationalities, you’ll learn to interact with people from different backgrounds, and you’ll develop confidence just from being away from home in a new country.
Explore new places
Summer schools generally offer a range of recreational activities to help students unwind after studying hard, and typically this will include the chance to see the sights of the local area or even further afield. For students from overseas, a summer school is a fantastic opportunity to combine academic studying with the chance to be a tourist in a foreign country, in the process learning about its culture and gaining valuable life experience.
