Review of Jose Gonzalez Quemada

"Going to the Solvay Summer School was the best way to take advantage of my summer, this program allowed me to spend a few days with wonderful people from around the world, making new friends, learning valuable things while doing tourism in and around Brussels. It was a unique experience!

Thanks again to those who made it happen and greetings to my colleges."

Review of Alessandra Vitale

"My experience at the Solvay Summer School was great: it was fun and educational at the same time, and this is the best you can get for your summer.

The professors were really good, they all caught our attention during their lectures and I actually learned a lot: as a law student it was really useful to get some more information about the business challenges in the European Union, it gave me a different perspective and a deeper understanding on what is going on today in Europe.

Education is not the only component of the Solvay Summer School. The Solvay’s student made sure we all had a great time: we had fabulous welcome and good-bye parties, they took care of all our meals so we had the chance to try Belgian specialities and to share moments together in beautiful restaurants. We visited the city,

and of course the European Institutions. Bruxelles is the place to be!"


Review of Kate Wakefield

"The Solvay Summer School was one of the best experiences of my life. It not only improved my confidence but gave me a whole new passion to explore different cultures and languages.

The social aspect was one that is hard to get anywhere. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming which has resulted in lifetime friends.

All of the Solvay committee are devoted to make sure everyone has the best time possible which is shown through how much we all enjoyed the tripI encourage anyone to take up this opportunity. Go outside your comfort zone, the summer school was incredible and in my top 5 favourite things I've ever done.

Attending will be one of your best decisions you've ever made!"


Review of Jessica Halsey

"Solvay Summer School was the best week of my Summer 2015. I learnt a great deal about various topics, which I had previously never been introduced to. I now have a greater understanding of the EU and have been inspired to follow my desires to become an entrepreneur, to name just a couple of things I have taken away from #SSS15. I have met some amazing people and made some great friends from all around Europe and further around the world. My expectations of summer school were achieved and exceeded and I would highly recommend it to anyone if they are given the opportunity!"

Review of Eirini Digka

"I always remember my professors’ advice to spend our summers doing something helpful for our future career. I could never have imagined how different and unforgettable would be my summer 2014. What do I mean? I applied for Solvay Summer School Program. From beginning to end, the program was incredible. The courses and activities were both well organized. Thanks to the amazing staff and distinguished professors, we spent 10 days learning about Europe and energy, fiscal challenges in the EU. One more important thing is the friends I made for life. I definitely suggest to apply for Solvay Summer School program. It’s not only school, it’s a big experience."
