Summer Schools

Short-term Summer Opportunities

The University recognises that a term or whole year abroad is a huge undertaking and isn’t for everyone. A great alternative is a summer school at one of our partner universities or through an organisation such as the British Council. Summer opportunities are generally a mix of social and cultural activities which can involve taught classes, industry visits, and practical sessions, as well as cultural activities and trips.

These may be restricted to students on certain programmes or open to all students. Please contact the Global Opportunities Team if you are interested in short-term summer opportunities.

What is a Summer School?

  • A great alternative to a study abroad programme
  • A way to deepen your knowledge of a particular subject area or hobby
  • Typically last between 2-4 weeks during June, July, or August
  • A mixture of social, cultural, and academic activities such as classes, industry visits, practical sessions, as well as cultural activities and trips
  • An opportunity to meet new people from around the world.

Many of our partner universities may offer Summer Schools, as well as external organisations offering other opportunities such as the British Council and Camp America. Funding is available through the UK’s Turing Scheme, Course Related Travelling Grant, and the Santander Travel Scholarship.

Where can I go?

Popular summer schools take place across Europe, and as far away as Japan.
