Lifelong Learning Summer School

Due to the exceptional international uncertainty at this time, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Lifelong Learning Summer School.

We hope you will consider applying to join us in summer 2021.  Please contact the Summer Programmes Department with questions or to register your interest.

                       With very best wishes, the Summer Programmes team at Girton College


Sunday 16 August – Saturday 29 August 2020

This residential summer school will give lifelong learners the extraordinary opportunity to experience something of Cambridge student life in the context of a programme specifically designed for adult learners from around the world.

Girton College is one of the larger constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge, and its beautiful buildings, excellent facilities, including a gym and indoor swimming pool, and spacious grounds are located just outside the city centre.  Ultimately Girton is a wonderful place in which to meet other lifelong learners in comfortable surroundings and as part of a friendly community.

Choose to attend the full two-week programme, or opt to attend for just one week (Sunday 16 August – Saturday 22 August, or Sunday 23 August – Saturday 29 August).
