The 70th Anniversary of the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School (SUISS) will run from the 10th July – 19th August 2017 at the University of Edinburgh.
The following courses may be taken for university credits, and sought at undergraduate and postgraduate level: Creative Writing; Modernism, Scottish Literature and Contemporary Literature; and Contemporary British and Irish Theatre and Performance.
The courses are supplemented by a wide-ranging social and cultural programme, and will include readings by contemporary Scottish authors. Edinburgh is the first UNESCO World City of Literature and is home to highly acclaimed authors such as JK Rowling, Ian Rankin, Irvine Welsh and Alexander McCall Smith to name just a few.
For more information regarding eligiblity and funding, visit the UQ student employability centre, or see their site on short-term international experiences.
If students wish to apply, they should contact the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School directly. If students wish to apply for credit for courses studied abroad, in this instance, they would need to seek advice from the HASS Faculty. Some Faculties may or may not pre-assess courses for students participating on short term programs directly, so students might need to wait until they’ve returned to determine if they can receive credit. Students may be eligible for OS-Help loans if they meet the criteria.
