University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh is proud to house the oldest English Literature department in the world – people have been studying English at Edinburgh longer than the USA has existed! With a wide range of optional degree modules, including Fairy Tales, Science Fiction, LGBT+ Fiction and Shakespearean Tragedy, Edinburgh has something for everyone. Throughout the digital summer school, you will work on a variety of texts and approaches to reading, and explore the cultural contexts of the work with our fantastic team of academic staff and students. You will develop your analytic, linguistic and creative skills by taking part in interactive online classes, independent study, and engaging group project work. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week. In recognition of its incredible literary history, Edinburgh was named the first ever World City of Literature by UNESCO in 2004.
History enables us to understand how the world has become what it is today, and to analyse events and issues from the past to help us navigate the future. Edinburgh has one of the largest and most diverse History departments in the UK, covering every period of history from the early Middle Ages to the present day, and all major geographical regions of the world. Throughout the digital summer school, you will experience a wide variety of topics and time-periods through interactive online classes, independent work, and engaging group projects. You will work with our fantastic team of academic staff and current students to deepen your understanding of time periods that you may be familiar with and to explore completely new areas of history. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
