Social Sciences Summer School

Unfortunately this year it is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Social Science Summer School due to take place between August 23rd - 25th). We are disappointed to have to announce this and had really been looking forward to meeting all of our applicants.

Queen’s University Belfast hosts the summer school each year, where you can learn more about important and interesting topics such as families, religion, crime and deviance, social inequality, ethnic diversity, politics, and more! 

Students have the opportunity to interact with staff and current students to get a taste of studying social sciences at university. The Summer School is a popular event and has received great feedback from students.

The Summer School is hosted by the QUB Q-Step Centre, a teaching hub to promote the quantitative social sciences, with funding from the Nuffield Foundation. The Summer School consists of a series of online lectures and tutorials. Students work together in small on-line project groups, undertaking a series of research activities. At the end each group makes a short presentation based on research they have been undertaking over the course of the summer school.

Future events will be posted here.
