An exciting opportunity in the heart of London!
As part of UCL's study abroad offering, the summer school runs in July and August and is divided into two sessions, each spanning three weeks. Choose to attend one session, or both, selecting one module per session.
With a wide range of modules on offer from many of our academic departments, you can choose the subject best suited to your academic or personal interests. Most modules are Level 1, introductory modules meaning you can choose to study a subject you have no prior knowledge of! There are also some Level 2 modules which do require some prior subject knowledge.
Modules are taught by UCL academics on the Bloomsbury campus in central London and include lectures, seminars, and group work as well as visits to areas of interest in and around the city.
Students should have completed one year of undergraduate studies at their home institution, with a GPA of 3.3/4.0 or equivalent; or 3.0/4.0 for students applying to lower-level modules (please see our website for details).
All courses are taught in English; non-native speakers will have to meet the English-language requirement found on the program website.
Outside of the classroom, we offer dedicated accommodation within walking distance of UCL and a varied programme of social events to help you make the most of your time in one of the world's most dynamic capital cities.
