Student profiles

Our programme attracts students from across the globe who are drawn by its flexibility and breadth.

Many take our programme in order to enhance their current careers, others go on to PhDs, while some study purely out of interest.

We asked some of our students at Summer School 2022 why they chose to study the programme and what they thought of it.
