The residential British Studies Summer Programme (British Studies)
The residential British Studies Summer Programme (British Studies) attracts academically able and highly deserving high-school students from across America.
Established in 1996 and supported by the ACS International Schools Foundation since 1997, British Studies is committed to the ideal of creative, multi-disciplined education for young people ages 15-18.
While residing in our world-class dormitory on the impressive 128-acre ACS Cobham International School campus near London, England, British Studies summer scholars engage expert teachers while visiting many of England’s most famous historical and cultural sites and other attractions.
In addition to being an excellent supplement for high school classes in European History, English Literature, Art, and Theatre, British Studies is great fun. The summer study-travel course is constantly evolving and often customised, drawing from the expressed interests of both former and prospective students.
For decades British Studies has been co-funded by the ACS International Schools Foundation, British-American Business Council affiliates, and other trusted US-based partners. We’re proud of this association and the life-changing experiences it’s brought to hundreds of young people from across the United States.
