QS Summer School Summit

QS Summer School Summit

What?

The premier international forum for higher education leaders to discuss summer school management (and other short-term programs), explore new summer school destinations for their students and expand their student- and faculty exchange networks

Who?

The rise of summer schools is one of the quiet revolutions that is transforming the global higher education system. Accessible and flexible, summer schools offer students a diverse range of international experiences, whether it be to explore a specific academic interest or to ‘just take the plunge’ and experience living and studying in a foreign country for the first time. Because of this, the number of students wanting to attend international summer schools is rapidly growing. For universities a summer school is a valuable addition in their international programs portfolio. Hosting a summer school can support the internationalization of their campus, the recruitment of international students, and the strengthening of relationships with other universities. Sending students to summer schools can also be a highly cost-effective method of stimulating student mobility. The QS Summer School Summit is the premier international forum for higher education leaders to discuss summer school management (and other short-term programs), explore new summer school destinations for their students and expand their student- and faculty exchange networks. In addition to unparalleled networking, the QS Summer School Summit offers opportunities to share best-practices and stay abreast of the latest developments in short-term student mobility in Asia and around the world.
