Find out more about the 2022 programme fee and what is included.


  • Full four-week programme: £3,240
  • Two-week programme (either block one or block two): £1,820

Leeds International Summer School (LISS) is an all-inclusive programme. Included in the programme fee is: 

  • tuition 
  • accommodation 
  • breakfast and lunch, Monday to Friday 
  • module field trips 
  • weekend excursions 
  • social programme 
  • The Edge sports centre membership

We also offer a free transport service to the University from Manchester Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport. Full details of how to book the transport service will be shared in May. Date restrictions may apply.

The cost of flights, insurance and visa is not included. 

When you've received your acceptance letter you'll be required to pay £300 of the programme fee as a deposit to accept your offer of a place on LISS. The remaining balance must be made in full by 9 May 2022. The deposit and remaining balance are non refundable 14 days after payment.


Payments are usually non-refundable after 14 days. However, we offer a flexible refund policy if the ongoing challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic mean we can’t host you in Leeds.

If you can’t travel to attend LISS for any reason relating to the pandemic, we’ll issue you with a full refund of your programme fee (including deposit). For example, if you can’t attend LISS due to travel restrictions put in place by your government. 

The University’s liability will not extend beyond this refund. We won’t be liable for any associated costs of attending LISS you have been unable to recover, eg travel costs. Please make sure you have appropriate travel insurance.

Champion scholarships

We are looking for four LISS Champions to raise the profile of Leeds International Summer School. As a Champion you’ll share your experience of attending the summer school via different platforms including social media, blog posts and presenting at events before, during and after the programme. The scholarship is worth £1,000 which will be used to help pay your LISS fees.  

To apply you should have an offer of a place on LISS for the full four-week programme. You should submit a video application to summer@leeds.ac.uk of no more than 2 minutes telling us why you should be chosen to be a LISS Champion. You should explain why you would be a good Champion for the University of Leeds, any relevant experience you have and how the opportunity will help you achieve your academic, personal and/or professional goals. The application deadline is 1 April. 

Please note you can apply for the merit scholarship and LISS Champion scholarship, but you cannot receive both.
