Debate Chamber Summer Schools are perfect for those keen to take the initiative and get a head start in their chosen field!

Whatever the subject, from Medicine to Mathematics, students will have the opportunity to really test their academic mettle, develop their intellectual curiousity, and meet new friends who share their interests and ambitions.

From mock trials and UN summits, to moon landings and deep space missions, we use interactive and experience-based learning to help bring the material alive for students. This signature blend of engaging practical activities and challenging academic content means that students connect with the course content in a way that is exciting and memorable.

Our extraordinary team of tutors are selected for their exceptional communication skills, charismatic and inspiring classroom presence, and very strong subject knowledge. Their role is to energise and inspire future scholars, and to offer clarity and guidance for the path ahead.

Working in small groups offers participants a real chance to get to know tutors and fellow students, and to receive lots of individual feedback and advice.

“Expect inspiring tutors, interactive lessons and an impressive group of students. I had an intense and memorable week at Debate Chamber, leaving with new friends and a new passion for international law. We debated about global issues and negotiated responses to complex international dilemmas”

Yasmin, International Relations Summer School

“I absolutely adored the summer school – it was completely inspiring and I enjoyed every second of it! I would have done the week over and over! I would recommend to anyone interested in literature, no matter whether experienced or not because you will, without a doubt, come away from the course with a passion for literature that will never leave you!”
