With exams nearly over, it’s time to start planning what to do this summer! Explore what’s on offer at the University of Edinburgh’s Festival of Open Learning and discover something new.

Chemistry Course gives Food for Thought!
If science is up your street then our fantastic Chemistry of Food two day course might just light your Bunsen burner this summer! Find out about the science involved in what we eat and drink, understand why foods taste and smell the way they do and get a glimpse into what happens chemically when you cook. A course for any aspiring Heston Blumenthal!

Get Creative with our Printing Courses
Perhaps you fancy just a taste of something new? If time is tight but you’re keen to get creative then our series of Printing Tasters offer you the chance to dabble in the worlds of ink, line, relief and vision. Starting on the 18th July, we have a whole host of 1.5 hour evening taster courses running throughout July and August, offered in a variety of subject areas such as music, literature and more. Take a look at all our taster courses on offer.

Tell the Perfect Tale with our Storytelling Course
Got a tale to tell? Everyone loves a good story. Wouldn’t it be great to capture even your friend’s imaginations with way you tell it? Our Storytelling summer course is ideal for those who wish to explore the practice of storytelling and its place in Scottish cultural heritage. Learn how to breathe life into a story while relating to your audience and really capturing their attention.

Speak up this Summer with our Language Courses
You’ll only be able to capture some people’s attention if you’re speaking their language, which is where our summer Language Courses will definitely help! With courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Modern Greek and Spanish, there’s plenty of choice for beginners and improvers alike. Courses run once or twice a week in the evening over 4 or 8 weeks, perfect preparation for your next trip abroad or for further study with us in the autumn!

Whatever your area of interest or availability this summer, we’re sure you’ll find something to suit you at the Festival of Open Learning 2017.
