Our international students represent over 60 nationalities, creating a dynamic, multi-cultural atmosphere.


Our Teachers:
Our highly qualified and motivated teachers have been carefully selected from academic institutions around the world for their qualifications, expertise and experience and bring with them an energy and enthusiasm for teaching and interacting with young people.

There is a staff student ratio of 1:5 and classes are intentionally kept small in order to provide individual attention and personalised instruction.

In addition to providing high quality academic standards for our summer students, our teachers are also dormitory residents and are backed up by counselors who act as role models and provide pastoral care.

Student Safety & Supervision:

Photos of ISSOS in Cambridge, EnglandThe safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority. Throughout the 3-week program, students are well supervised within scheduled classes, trips and activities and also during their free time.

In terms of locations, Cambridge is well known as an exceptionally safe university town offering a safe environment for students to enjoy their summer.

Qualified instructors run all outdoor activities and activities using outside contractors (e.g. water sports), who are subject to detailed risk assessments.

Our team of counselors are dedicated to supervising and looking after students. They organise evening activities and are always available to support students as and when required and live in the same halls of residence as students to make sure they are monitored.


Student Accommodation:
Our summer school programs are run in the extensive and beautiful grounds of Queens College, Cambridge.

Our international students will be housed in the historic halls of residence, providing a comfortable and safe home for the duration of the summer school.

ISSOS has excellent academic standards as well as highly qualified teaching staff; we met them at the parents reception and were very impressed."
