International Study Centres for Summer 2014

The University is running two International Study Centres in the summer vacation of 2014. These courses will broaden your international and educational experience, giving you an insight into another country and a different academic discipline.

  • Cape Town – end of June/early July. Just over 2 weeks based at the University of the Western Cape focusing on 20 years of democracy in South Africa. The course will cover the apartheid years, bringing together a conflicted society and field work in a township. There will also be an African languages workshop and visits to Robben Island, District Six, Table Mountain and around the Cape.
  • Beijing – a 3-week visit in August 2014 based at the prestigious Peking University with lectures and discussions on art and culture. The course will include visits to cultural heritage sites, galleries and museums, and further afield, including the Great Wall of China.

Both Study Centres are open to all students in any discipline. A fee is payable for the courses, which will cover air fares, accommodation, tuition, transport and most visits and food. Bursaries are available for those students who may not be able to afford the full fee.
