Love Languages summer school

Description

Encouraging students from under-represented groups to consider progressing on to university study through immersive academic and social experiences. Students will work with current Languages student mentors and take part in lots of different activities during the Summer School, which could include a French rap workshop, trying traditional Chinese calligraphy and learning Mandarin, a taster in Italian, Spanish and Mexican culture, coming up with a breakfast TV broadcast in French…and lots more! Students will also stay with us overnight each night and everyone will also take part in a busy schedule of social activities with the student mentors, giving them the opportunity to find out what it is like studying and living at university.
