As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Bordeaux has decided to host the 2021 edition of the Bordeaux Summer Schools remotely as online courses. The feedback from our 2020 virtual summer school from participants and faculty was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to further enriching academic experiences online in 2021.

Since 2012, the University of Bordeaux organizes summer schools that offer a range of high-quality, multidisciplinary international courses for graduate and doctoral students as well as young researchers.

In 2021, the Bordeaux Summer Schools program will take place between late May and October. Courses will cover very different disciplines ranging from African studies to advanced materials to health sciences to social sciences to oenology and more! These courses are highly selective and target international talents. The Bordeaux Summer Schools program offers an enriching curricular experience with, depending on the discipline, a mixture of theoretical and practical training that demands a notable level of expertise and knowledge. 

Research orientated course content

The Bordeaux Summer Schools benefit from strong input regarding format and scientific content from the University of Bordeaux Graduate Research School, a central structure that coordinates the doctoral schools and the entire field of doctoral studies. A large majority of the summer schools are organized in collaboration with internationally renowned laboratories and institutes that share their expertise and cutting-edge facilities with the students and researchers that come to Bordeaux over the summer.
