English for Humanities International Summer Programme – this is ideal for students who wish to improve their academic and general English while learning about British theatre, literature and film.

English for Medics International Summer Programme – this longstanding course is for medical students who wish to improve their English in a medical setting, as well as find out about contemporary health and medical topics in the UK.

Leicester Discovery International Summer Programme – Discovery is ideal for students who wish to improve their language skills through a range of activities encouraging the use of spoken English, in addition to daily English classes.

We have two scholarships available, one reserved for students of University of Leicester partners. For more information, please contact summer@le.ac.uk.
