University of Crete New Summer School

Some people dread holiday breaks claiming that breaking out of their routine can be really hard; they say holidays are “hard-work”. Others volunteer and start to work either as hobbyists, doing charity during vacation or trying to learn a new skill. But there are also those who put a lot of time and effort during holidays so as to take the next step forward without feeling out-of-place.

The thing is Crete is an ideal holiday destination, a safe place to be and excellent research hot spot. If you know you are going to take a Master’s degree in Chemistry (in English) and if you are a bit apprehensive about your language level and study skills, you should take this course. Academic English for Chemistry is designed for prospective post-graduate students who wish to get themselves acquainted with the language of Chemistry in English and learn scientific conventions in order to read and write scientific papers.


If you are not afraid of hard work and if you like to combine training whilst visiting a sun-drenched, vibrant and one of the most diverse and enchanting holiday destinations, then you should take this course. If interested, check out this link.

NB. A considerable amount of the content of this course is similar to that of English for Chemistry 1 and 2, English for Materials Science 1 and 2, and Academic English and Chemistry Terminology; hence, students that have previously taken these courses during the winter and spring semester should note that they have already gone through similar materials and skills.
