Summer abroad

Make the most of your summer! Summer schools and study centres allow you to get a taste of living and working abroad without committing to a full year, providing an enjoyable experience while enhancing your global awareness and improving employability, leadership and advocacy skills.

You can study a wide range of subjects, meet students from around the globe, and see more of the world - in the space of a few weeks!
