Totally free, right down to your meals and accommodation, you’ll meet some of the profession’s top people and we’ll get you stuck into a real-life marketing brief (previous Summer Schoolers have come up with marketing plans for the likes of EasyJet, Microsoft and Bacardi).

And the best bit? Summer School brings you face to face with top marketers who have graduate vacancies to fill. Impress them and you’re ahead of the rest.

  • Tackle a live marketing brief – get hands on and show off your skills
  • Meet influential contacts - who could be your future employers
