Our programmes last between three days and two weeks and run according to the LSE Summer School model. The programmes consist of several short courses and/or workshops and cover subjects we feel will be most valuable to the country in which the projects are set up. 

We operate programmes upon the invitation of a host university and work closely with them to develop a subject-agnostic and skills-focused programme that suits and benefits their students. In 2022 we returned to our in-person programmes reaching 704 students across 9 countries.
