Spread your wings in London

Spend your summer in one of the most fascinating and stimulating cities in the world while earning academic credit for your degree programme.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've postponed the launch of our International Summer School until summer 2022, when we'll be developing an exciting array of modules for you to study here in the heart of London.

If you’re looking to study abroad in the 2021-22 academic year, you may be interested in our study abroad programme which will be running in autumn 2021 and spring 2022. Find out more information here.

Our summer school usually has two sessions that take four weeks each to complete. Session start dates are normally in June and July and will be confirmed nearer the time. Only one module can be studied per session, but you can sign up for multiple sessions if you want to study more than one module.
