Join your fellow course participants and take part in a variety of social and cultural events as part of the NILE Online Summer Courses 2020!


Through live events and suggested activities we seek to enhance your student experience in a holistic way, providing you with opportunities to learn about British culture, through a variety of mediums such as a range of live events put on by NILE, virtual tours of museums based in Norwich, Cambridge and London, and suggestions of stories to read and movies to watch.

We also suggest cultural live streaming events organised by external organisations.

This Social Programme is designed to accompany the three and four-week online courses starting on 6th July. It includes a live event via Zoom lasting approximately one hour each, and in addition, there will be suggestions for optional daily activities that course participants can do in their spare time. An example timetable is published below, the full details are available through the online course platform.

The social programme events are all optional, but in order for you to get the most out of your course we encourage you to take part as much as possible.
