The Scottish Universities' International Summer School (SUISS) was founded as a non-profit organisation by Professor David Daiches in 1947. In the spirit of the Edinburgh International Festival, SUISS brings together students and academics who, irrespective of their national, religious, or cultural difference, share a love of literature. SUISS is affiliated with seven prestigious Scottish universities: The University of Aberdeen, The University of Dundee, The University of Edinburgh, The University of Glasgow, The Open University in Scotland, The University of St Andrews and The University of Strathclyde.

Each summer, SUISS offers an intensive, challenging and diverse programme of study that takes place in July and August in Edinburgh, the world's first UNESCO City of Literature. For further details about the School, please visit SUISS.
