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. Our unique London-focused modules will give you an insight into exciting new findings in business, culture, politics and psychology. 

Our summer school has three sessions that take four weeks each to complete. Session start dates are in June, July and August 2021. Only one module is studied per session, but you can sign up for multiple sessions if you want to study more than one module.

Please note that our summer school modules are currently subject to validation. In the unlikely event that a module isn’t validated by its start date, we will get in touch to discuss the options available to you.

We are still looking to add more modules to our summer school for 2021 and these will be posted on our website shortly.
