Middlesex University is urging Londoners with summer holiday time on their hands, to expand their mind with a Summer School course.
And don’t worry about missing out on the sun, as courses are based at the University’s Trent Park campus, set in acres of North London countryside, where visitors can relax in the park or even by the outdoor swimming pool.
Many of the courses cover subjects to get the artistic juices flowing like creative writing, pop music, playwriting or literature, often including tours of well known London landmarks and attractions.
Other options will appeal to people who want to boost their business or CV, including E-marketing and social media strategy, web design and the popular ‘Art of presenting’ course for those who want to make an impact when speaking in meetings.
Middlesex University Summer School Manager Tim Rudd said: “My advice to Londoners is throw away your holiday brochure, as I can’t think of a better place to spend the summer than in nine hundred acres of wooded parkland, lakes and meadows, whilst meeting people and learning something new.”
“Our range of courses includes psychology, politics, creative subjects, sport and business with some just for fun or interest and others leading to university level qualifications.”
Courses last from just two days up to five weeks, taking place in July or August. All are based in North London, with most held at Trent Park (Oakwood Tube, Piccadilly Line) .
Facilities on the Trent Park site include a café, bar and kids camp for children between 5-11 years old.
