World Cultures, Global Futures summer school
World Cultures, Global Futures was a three-day summer school open to year 12 students from state schools in June 2017.
Academics from German, Film Studies and Comparative Literature worked with Modern Language Centre teachers to engage 35 students in discussion and activities around cultural difference, globalisation, linguistic and cultural diversity, and national and global identity.
The students gained experience of university- level seminar teaching and exposure to new materials and languages. They also had the opportunity to meet current students and find out more about degree-level study, as well as take part in a careers workshop.
