Join the Summer University and visit:


England’s second largest city and your home for the Summer
University. Famous for its architecture, culture, music scene, sports clubs, universities and night life, the city is a unique and bustling hub of diversity. We will take you on visits to museums and show you hidden secrets, so you’ll get to experience Manchester in a different way.


You will not want to miss the opportunity to spend this summer in Sheffield! Have you ever wondered what its like up in God’s own county of Yorkshire? Maybe you’ve heard it’s England’s third largest city, or maybe you’ve heard it’s the home of the Arctic Monkeys? Either way, the Steel City is an unknown pleasure worth seeing!


The port city of Liverpool, home of the legendary Beatles, has much to offer: With UNESCO world heritage sites such as Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street, Liverpool is one of the most significant cities in the UK. Do you have what it takes to become a „Scouser”?


Blackpool is a famous seaside resort on the North-West coast of
England with a long history. It's known among Brits for the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an old-school amusement park with vintage wooden roller coasters and the Promenade. The most iconic landmark is the Blackpool Tower, with arguably the best view of the city. So what are you waiting for? Come and explore one of Britain’s most iconic cities with us!
