International Study Centres   

Best ever summer. Go global with your studies this summer. #GoIntl

International Study Centres (ISC) are short summer courses open to York students of all disciplines and all levels of study (including postgraduates). You will travel in a group of around 20 students from York and spend around two weeks exploring a topic and visiting areas of interest. No prior knowledge of the subjects is required.

Why do an ISC?

Our students' stories may help you to decide if an ISC is right for you. Sophie wanted to experience the culture of another country. The ISC in Cape Town 2019 suited her as she learned about the history, politics and culture of South Africa and, as the ISC was only two weeks, it also meant she wasn't away from her family for too long. 

Application

Applications for the International Study Centres taking place during the summer vacation 2022 are now open and will close on Wednesday 16 February 2022.

More details can be found on the How to Apply webpage.

Funding

Each year there are a limited number of scholarships you can apply for to help towards covering the costs of the programme and travel arrangements.  They are competitive and will be distributed on a needs basis but are open to all students.   

Your eligibility for partial or full funding will be evaluated as part of your application for the International Study Centres.

The Global Academy in Cape Town is a longer five week programme, therefore we recommend you apply for funding up to £3000 from the York Futures Scholarship to help with the costs of the programme.
