Who Should Attend?

All university staff involved in organising and marketing summer schools or managing student mobility should attend the QS Summer School Summit. This can include international office staff and directors, international student counsellors, faculty members overseeing international curriculum development and any other senior university managers involved in international programmes.

The QS Summer School Summit offers an outstanding opportunity to expand your university's network by developing relationships directly with students and faculty, in addition to expanding and deepening traditional institutional partnerships. The Summit will help to accelerate the development of a university's summer school by providing a highly effective platform to showcase summer schools and meet with customers and providers, in addition to gaining the necessary know-how for summer school success. If you represent an institution that is sending students, the Summit offers an unmatched breadth of short-term programmes to choose from, both in terms of both content and destinations, and you can meet the people managing these programmes and find out where your students’ needs are best met.

Ultimately, summer schools are often the beginning of strong institutional relationships and they build internationalisation capacity at the organising institution. Therefore the QS Summer School Summit can help you create a strong and effective global network of institutional partnerships that deliver quick and tangible results.
