Summer abroad

Spending the summer abroad allows you to get a taste of living and working internationally without committing to a full year. Summer schools or International Study Centres (ISCs) can enhance your global awareness and improve employability, leadership and advocacy skills.

Find out more about summer opportunities and travel awards.

University-wide exchanges

Undergraduate Computer Science students may apply to study abroad on credit-replacing exchange at one of York’s University-wide partners, which are open to students from most other departments at the University.

Computer Science students can only take part in this opportunity in their second year of study.

Please note that Computer Science students cannot apply for York University (Canada) through the University-wide Exchange programme.

How to apply

For academic queries, contact your supervisor or the Departmental International Officer, Dr Claudio Guarnera
