Summer Study Abroad

Our Summer Study Abroad programme is ideal for students who are looking for high-quality, short-term 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."
- Scott Solakian (USA) Footwear Design, London College of Fashion

Entry requirements

Level of study

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

Level of English

The equivalent of IELTS 5.0 or above is required.

Credit

At the end of your course, we will provide a record of study with the grades you have achieved for each unit and their equivalent US credit value. To earn credit for your Summer Study Abroad course, please check that your home institution will award external credit before you travel to London.

Financial aid and scholarships

Each summer, we award tuition-fee waivers for the following courses. Further information, including details of how to apply, can be found on each course page:

Accommodation

Summer Study Abroad students have the option to reserve a space in 1 of UAL's halls of residence. Although UAL Study Abroad and Accommodation endeavour to provide students with suitable UAL accommodation, space is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

It is advantageous for students to book their summer accommodation as soon as they receive their offer letter; however, students will only receive the discounted rate once they receive an unconditional offer from the central UAL Study Abroad team. For more details about the discounted rate, please refer to the conditional offer letter.
