Special Interest Courses

At CISS, we believe that students benefit most when they choose a summer learning experience that best suits their personality and goals. For international students interested in topics “beyond ESL”, our Special Interest Courses allow them to gain knowledge and skills in a subject area while practicing their English in a supportive environment. From leadership skills to preparation for university life and careers, these courses reflect the interests and passions of today’s youth and are designed to help prepare them for future success. The courses take place inside a larger programme, offering both the opportunity for focused study with a group of like-minded peers and the chance to be part of a large group of participants from around the world with a full schedule of activities and excursions.
