Our Summer Study Abroad programme is ideal for students who are looking for high-quality, short-term Study Abroad courses. 

The programme provides an intensive experience of practical projects, tutorials and workshops, with many courses featuring visits to places of interest in London and beyond.

We offer courses for students who have completed a year of undergraduate-level study in their specialist area, as well as those with little or no experience.

Studying abroad is great because not only are you immersed in a new set of classes, you're immersed in new culture, a new way of being taught, and a new way of thinking.

Level of study required

Summer Study Abroad is suitable for students who have completed at least 1 year of undergraduate-level study.

Level of English required

The equivalent of IELTS 5.0 or above.

Summer Study Abroad plus English option is available if you would prefer to take English language tuition before your course.
