Scottish Universities’ International Summer School

For the sixth year, we are delighted to be working in partnership with the Scottish Universities' International Summer School (SUISS).

Students on this internationally renowned programme, which brings together students and academics with a love of literature and culture, enjoy enhanced TalkFest events.

In 2018, students on the programme enjoyed masterclasses with artists Mark Jeary and Mariem Omari and with Ramesh Meyyappan. They also attended Let Them Lead the Way, our discussion chaired by playwright Jenny Knotts at the Traverse Theatre.
