ENGLAND - Ormskirk
Summer: July - early August
(Edge Hill University)
Spend a summer studying at an English university while exploring the beauty of northern England. The Academic Summer Programme at Edge Hill University is designed to help develop your learning in a friendly and effective learning environment. The focus of the program is to enhance your academic knowledge through the exploration of the core class, British Culture and Heritage, and your chosen subject (you have the option of studying Business and Entrepreneurship or The Literary Landscape of the North of England). The summer program is 5 weeks total, with four weeks at Edge Hill University and a one week trip to London.
Edge Hill University is a co-educational university of arts and sciences offering a wide variety of study choices. Situated in a charming twelfth century market town in bucolic rural North West England, it is one of Edge Hill's three campuses. There are over 8,000 full-time students with approximately 1,000 campus residents.
Ormskirk is a friendly town with a population of approximately 30,000 people. It is located in the northwest of England, just thirty minutes from the cities of Liverpool, Manchester and Preston that provide varied nightlife, great shopping, a thriving arts scene, and all the attractions of city life. Also close by are the beautiful Lake District, the Yorkshire Moors, and traditional seaside towns in North Wales.
Assessment takes place throughout the course via the production of an academic portfolio, including individual and group presentations, short pieces of written work and multiple question tests.
At the end of your stay on campus we will hold a celebration event when you will be presented with your certificate of attendance. This is our chance to say farewell to you, and to wish you well for the future and to wish you a very enjoyable stay in London.
While you are at Edge Hill, you will take two courses - the required British Culture and Heritage course and either a literature or business course. Each of the courses will be counted as three Lewis University credits for a total of six credits for the program.
