The ESU runs a series of summer programmes for three different
Shakespeare Study Course in Stratford-upon-Avon
for teachers of English, drama or theatre and for students
at postgraduate level (only for UK participants).
Globe Education Cultural Seminar: Shakespeare
and His Stage in London for teachers of English or theatre
who are non-native English Speakers.
International Relations Conference (IRC)
at Mansfield College, Oxford for young professionals.
We are therefore looking for young people who will commit
to the summer programme they have applied for and will immerse
themselves in the experience. The ESU seeks to benefit young
people regardless of their professional background.
For the Cultural Seminar and the IRC, the ESU can offer one
scholarship place per programme, per country. Scholarships
will be awarded on the merit of the application ONLY - regardless
of who has nominated the applicant.
At the International Relations Conference additional delegate
places per country are available for a reasonable fee. Places
on the courses are limited, so please ensure all applications
are submitted on time.
An ESU scholarship covers accommodation, meals and any excursions
or theatre trips. The scholarship/course fee DOES NOT cover
travel to and from the UK, and travel to and from your arrival
Nominees should only apply
if they can commit to the entire duration of the course.
As the programmes are a week long, it is imperative that
the chosen delegates arrive on time and do not leave before
the end of the course. Delegates arriving after the start
date or leaving before the final day will lose their scholarship
immediately and the ESU/nominating organisation will be
eligible for any fi nancial loss incurred and may forfeit

and/or children will not be able to accompany them to
any of the summer seminars.
