T. S. Eliot International Summer School

The T. S. Eliot International Summer school brings together students and renowned scholars from around the world for a nine-day, immersive exploration of the life and work of Nobel Prize winning poet, critic, and dramatist T. S. Eliot. 


The T. S. Eliot International Summer School 2023 runs across one week, from 8-16 July 2023 at Senate House, London.

The programme features original lectures, small-group seminars, readings by eminent writers, and special outings to theatres, libraries, and literary landmarks, including day trips to Burnt Norton and Little Gidding.

The Summer School is hosted by the Institute of English Studies of the University of London, which facilitates study and research across the field of English Studies. The Institute has an established interest in Modernist literature, the subject of numerous of its conferences and research seminar series, which are open to all, as are its established series of literary readings. It hosts a portfolio of research programmes and provides postgraduate teaching and training in this research environment.

The fee for the T.S. Eliot Summer School is £700 for one week, which includes the provision of documentary material, offsite trips, lunches and coffee and tea.

The School offers a small number of bursaries from our generous donors, designed to help those who could not otherwise afford to attend the School. To apply for a bursary, please complete the form upon booking. Our 2023 deadline for bursary applications will be announced shortly.
