Summer Enrichment Programs 2018

There are hundreds of amazing and valuable programs available for secondary students to participate in during the summer break. Throughout Europe, Canada, USA and Australia students can get involved in subject-specific programs, programs offering combinations of fun, travel, cultural learning, languages, adventure, sport or academic preparation. A quick Google search using keywords such as summer camps Europe will yield a host of opportunities.

Below is a brief list of some programs that might be of value to older Secondary students. Universities sponsor some of these; others use university facilities to run their programs. Some offer financial support and some are free. This is by no means a comprehensive list, so if you are considering such a program for your summer break, please research the options thoroughly. The IST counselors are always available to discuss the value of any programs that you might be considering.
