Summer of learning and fun

Camden Summer University offers fantastic free courses for 13 to 19 year olds hosted by some of London’s biggest names.

You can study drama at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), drawing at Central Saint Martins college of art and design or have the films you make screened at the British Museum - all for free and on your doorstep.

Many of the courses are accredited, which means that as well as having a blast you’ll have something to put on your CV when applying for work or university.

Courses fill up fast, so visit the website now to see which you might want to sign up for before bookings go live on 15 June.

Camden Summer University, which runs from 24 July to 25 August 2017, has about 70 courses on offer, including:

  • film-making, animation and TV studio production
  • painting and pottery
  • photography,journalism and fashion
  • drama, dance and music
  • baking, trampolining and football
  • motorcycle mechanics and off-road riding.

Hanifa Mohammed, 17, who lives in West Hampstead, is a former Camden Summer University student and worked as a volunteer helper, or ‘peer motivator’, to support other young people on last year’s summer programme. She will be a peer motivator again this year.

Hanifa said: “I was a student on the fashion, screenprinting and woodworking courses on Camden Summer University in 2015. Last year I joined as a peer motivator to support other students on the dance, fashion and music production courses.

"It's one of the best ways to spend your summer. You have a great time, meet new people, make lasting friends and gain qualifications that can take you further in the things you love.”
