Overview

Our award winning, all-inclusive summer school experience offers high school students aged 13 - 18 the opportunity to combine learning, creative enrichment and action-packed adventure at the world renowned universities of St Andrews, Cambridge and Yale.

Places from any one nationality are limited to 10% and native and non-native English speakers mixed at all times, we guarantee our students a truly international experience of a lifetime. We provide a well balanced and enriching summer programme where students from all over the world come together for 3 weeks to create an international family, choosing academic and elective classes to suit their needs and interests.

In addition to our exceptional academic and elective classes, all of our students will take part in our varied and exciting activities, clan events and cultural trips. Every event has been designed for our students to have fun, explore what the local area has to offer and get to know their fellow ISSOS students.

ISSOS is a constantly growing international family with students coming to our campuses from over 80 different nationalities around the world. We aim to deliver the highest quality programmes led by an inspirational team, creating an international family where friendships span the world and last long beyond the summer.

Accommodation

All of our students are housed in the University halls of residence, in an area exclusive to ISSOS, where the student groups are divided by gender and also by age range. Each student will be allocated a shared or single room. The majority of rooms in our accommodation are shared, but any students who require a single, or shared, room for medical reasons will be given priority when we allocate rooms.

All students in shared rooms will be sharing with someone of the same age and gender. Their roommate will be of a different nationality to them and they will not be sharing with someone they already know. We try to make sure that if a student is coming to ISSOS to improve their English that they are not in a room with someone that speaks their own language, which encourages them to speak English at all times and gives an even greater immersion experience.

    The summers that I spent at ISSOS were the best summers of my life. I met incredible people that I’ll never forget. Every minute I spent at ISSOS was priceless and filled with joy, happiness and laughter, and I will forever be grateful to be part of the ISSOS family

    Our daughter made so much progress at ISSOS. Her English improved significantly, she has a wonderful network of friends from all over the world, and she feels confident about applying to university. ISSOS is a brilliant experience and we would recommend it to everyone,

    All 3 of my children have attended ISSOS and the experience was amazing every time. They have all travelled extensively but when you ask them what their most influential trips have been they all say ISSOS was one of the best experiences of their lives. They made friendships there that they still have years later. This programme is wonderful and I highly recommend it.
