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!

Start sorting your summer using the links below and see Summer highlights for information on the "Migration and the crises of solidarity in Europe" Summer School at CITY College, Greece and Summer School on Brazilian-related topics at UFMG, Federal University of Minas Gerais.
