Many full time students take classes full time during the academic year and spend their summers relaxing or working to save money for the upcoming school year. In order to preserve, enhance, or add to the information they have already learned, some students choose to take summer courses.

What is a summer course?  The name itself denotes that it is a course the typically takes place during the summer. These courses are typically offered by colleges, universities and other schools around the world. Some summer courses benefit students with additional knowledge that will assist them in a future career. Other courses also provide credits toward a higher level degree.

There are many expected and unexpected benefits for those who enroll in a summer course. Gaining more knowledge and keeping current with career enhancing skills are among those benefits that students expect. What individuals may not expect is that taking a summer course often preserves valuable knowledge and study skills, making the return to school much easier at the summer’s end.

Because there is much variation in the types and levels of summer courses that are available, the costs of the courses may also vary. For example, a summer course in fashion, taken through a community college may cost much less than a summer engineering course taken from a four-year university. Contacting individual schools to get information about tuition costs is strongly advised.

Almost any current or future career can be enhanced when one invests time into a summer course. Those who are still in school gain the benefit of not losing ground on the things they have learned during the school year. Their study habits may also be better than those students who do no studying during the summer months. Individuals that are already employed in a career may also benefit by learning more job skills by taking a short summer course.

The most important part of taking a summer course is to make the decision that your ongoing education is important. Once the decision is made, you can search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Which promises are legally binding, and which are not? What happens if you break a promise? In what circumstances can you escape from your promise? These are the fundamental questions of contract law. And contract law is important because of the extent to which it governs our lives: when we are shopping in the supermarket, or renting a house, or employed at work, or booking a holiday - most of our transactions, whether routine or exceptional, are contractual. This module will provide an introduction to the major principles of English contract law. -

Within the new perspectives that have to be considered in an ELE course is the increasing interest in the presence of the cultural issues in the programs, according to the conviction in that learning a language without reference to the community who speaks that language is a difficult task and not very enriching. The communicative approach, that seems to be the most efficient at languages learning nowadays, requires the inclusion of cultural aspects as it deals with a didactics orientation that keeps in mind the idea that it is not only important the linguistic competence, but also the extralinguistic competence. What we intend is to offer the students a program in which the cultural contents are used as a starting point or as a platform for the presentation of the linguistic system. -

Following global commemorative celebrations of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 2016, the module will include examining issues that surround memorializing the dead, both in Shakespeare’s own time and our own. -

This module introduces you to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme, implemented across England from 2008. The programme sought to address a significant problem in the provision of psychological therapies in England but is a challenge experienced in many parts of the world. That is, limited access to ‘evidence-based psychological therapies’ for the treatment of ‘high-prevalence’ or ‘common’ mental health problems, often resulting in very long waiting times and difficulties concerning the acceptability of treatments being offered, or in meeting the needs of people with some feature of diversity. -
