Study London, the Mayor’s official university guide has today launched its first ever Summer School competition to encourage more Chinese students to London.

The London Summer Schools campaign, which aims to promote short-term summer courses to Chinese students, will offer two lucky winners a fully-funded educational adventure to London.

The students will embark on an academic summer course - each with a recognised qualification - and will have the chance throughout their stay to explore the British capital and experience life as a Londoner.

The campaign is supported by two leading UK academic institutions which will provide fully-funded summer courses. Imperial College London will be offering a free place for one student on the Revolutions in Biomedicine Summer Programme (1 – 26 July 2019), while University of the Arts London (UAL) will be providing a fully funded place for the other winner on the English Plus City Photography summer course (15 - 26 July 2019). Both students will also receive:

Return flights to London.

Accommodation at an Urbanest property in central London for the duration of the stay

An online Aspire Account by Unizest with spending money.

Two London Passes for tourist attractions across London

‘Afternoon Tea’ experience for the winner and one guest at The Landmark London hotel

London’s Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, said: “With a choice of more than 30 summer schools and hundreds of course options, these short-term educational programmes are a fantastic opportunity for Chinese students to get a taste for the capital’s vibrant academic and cultural life. It is also an opportunity for London to welcome yet more bright young minds to our city.”

Sophie Rutschmann, Faculty of Medicine Academic Lead at Imperial College London said: “The Revolutions in Biomedicine Summer Programme gives a unique insight into the immersive research environment of our world-renowned Faculty of Medicine.

“This is a great opportunity to experience world-class education in the midst of one of the world’s great cities, and to start real growth as someone who will contribute to science.

“As an institution Imperial has more than 2,600 Chinese students and is the UK’s biggest collaborator with China.”

Zoe Chadwick, Business Manager at the UAL said; "Our two-week English Plus City Photography course gives students a fantastic opportunity to improve both their English language and their photography skills at a world-renowned art and design university in London.

“UAL highly values our long-standing relationship with our Chinese student body and many many UAL graduates are now hailed as top Chinese fashion designers. We are delighted to take part in this opportunity to further celebrate our relationship with China.”

China is London’s largest student market, and has grown by over 58% since 2011*

London has four universities listed in the World University Rankings top 40, and five universities in the top 200, cementing London’s reputation as one of the best cities in the world for higher education.

The competition will be running on and closes on 31st March 2019.
