The University of Exeter has initiated what it hopes will become one of the highlights of its annual calendar, hosting its first International Summer School as part of its new Internationalisation Strategy. Twenty five students from some of the world’s leading universities attended the inaugural programme in July. They began their three week course with a short visit to London before heading to Exeter for the remainder of their stay. Admission to the programme was competitive, with students drawn from partner institutions in China, Taiwan, India and the United Arab Emirates. Two academic themes were on offer: either Leadership for Global Challenges or Law. While academic courses occupied most days, the programme also included trips to Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury, St Ives and the Eden Project, as well as regular evening activities. Read full text here.
