An exciting opportunity brought to you by a world-leading university in the heart of London!
Please note that in response to the global Covid-19 situation, most UCL Summer School modules will be offered fully online in 2021, while some will continue to be offered face-to-face on the UCL campus. Students taking online modules need not travel to London but accommodation close to campus is on offer for any students who do so.
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.
Where possible, 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 accommodation within walking distance of UCL and a varied programme of social and cultural activities to ensure you meet others on the programme.
