The programme

What are the activities to unwind and relax?

We have a variety of afternoon, evening activities and full day trips. Please see our activities pages for examples.

How much free time will i get?

We want you to make the most out of your time with us, so we pack in lots of activities to offer a fun and rewarding schedule. However, we know you’ll want to have free time to explore the city, hang out with friends or just relax in your room, so you’ll get a couple of hours off for lunch each day, have Sunday afternoon off and there are other periods of optional free time during the summer school.

What is a typical day like?

The morning will typically involve your classes. After lunch, you will normally have a mixture of either workshops or seminars, while the evening will usually involve fun social activities. For a more detailed outline, please check the timetable in courses pages.

When do I have to go to bed?

Lights-out are at 11pm and students are asked to be in their own rooms by this time. This will enable you to get enough rest for the next day ahead.

Who are my tutors?

We spend a lot of time hand-picking and training the best tutors for each course. Our tutors are typically experts in their field. You can read more about our tutors on our tutors page.

Will I get certificate / accreditation at the end of the course?

All students who successfully complete the course will be given an LITE Regal Summer School certificate at our Graduation Evening on the last night of the summer programme. Parents or relatives are very welcome to attend this.

Are you officially connected to the Universities?

Whilst we contract with Universities in London and Cambridge for the use of facilities, we have no formal connection with these Universities.

Accommodation and food

What are the food arrangements?

We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. A continental breakfast, three-course lunch and dinner will be provided in the college dinning hall. During day trips packed lunches will be collected from the dinning halls and depending on the length of the trip dinner might take place in local restaurants as part of the social programme.

Can you accommodate special dietary needs?

We are used to accommodating most dietary requirements – including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, lactose intolerant, as well as religious dietary requirements and other dietary needs. We’ll ask you to let us know what your dietary requirements are before the summer school starts, and we’ll then double check this with you when you arrive so we make sure we can cater to your needs.

Will boys and girls be housed separately?

We make every effort to place boys and girls on separate floors within the accommodation, within any limitations due to the layout of the accommodation.

Will I be sharing a room?

We do offer accommodation in single rooms upon request and early booking is recommended for these. It is likely that you will be sharing a room with someone the same age as you.  If you are sharing, you will be with someone of a different nationality.
