The IEEE Magnetics Society Summer School is held annually during (northern hemisphere) summer holidays. The school is designed for graduate students studying magnetism and related areas. It consists of lectures by international experts and includes poster presentations by participating graduate students. The program covers fundamentals and advanced topics in magnetism.

The School provides support to students based on a competitive application. Awardees are provided with free room and board and are reimbursed for most of the cost of transportation to/from the school. Students from all parts of the world are accepted. It is expected they become members of the Magnetics Society at the time of the School.
