Summer Schools

Spend your summer seeing the world

Short-term overseas courses this summer

Great news! UEL Education Abroad now provides financial support for students wanting to take part in a Summer School programme. We understand that not everyone is in a position to spend a full year or even an entire semester abroad, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the chance to spend some time abroad, too! By the way, did we mention you don’t have to follow a course in the area you are studying – you are totally free to pick the topic of your choice! Immerse yourself in an international setting with other students from all over the world for 2 weeks to 2 months.

Take part in different field trips every week, and gain academic credit.

Complement your learning at UEL with a short, study experience overseas.

This scheme is open to everyone (by that, we mean, all UEL students, of course).


How does it work? 

The way it works, you pick your Summer School and independently apply via the host university’s website, then you apply for funding via us. This is because we don’t want you to miss out on their application deadlines. Ours is the 29th of April 2018.

Please note that this is a part-funding scheme, i.e. we will not cover all the costs. You may apply for a fixed amount: the tuition fees, the flights, or the accommodation costs. We will leave the choice upto you because we want you to assess the costs and decide which one would help you the most.

Grab our application form here, and send it over to once you are ready. We will review all applications the week of the 30th of April, and get back to you to let you know whether your application has been successful.
