Summer English courses in the University of Leeds

Since 2010 the students and the staff of the School of Telecommunications Systems and Engineering UPM can participate in the Summer General English Programme of The Language CentreUniversity of Leeds (United Kingdom) thanks to an agreement between both Institutions.

The Summer General English Programme is promoted internationally, and is therefore open to students other than ETSIST students, permitting mixed nationality groups.
