7 December 2017

The programme, which is open to students at universities around the world runs in July and August each year and is divided into two three-week teaching sessions.

Summer School This means students can study for three or six weeks, take one module per session, and transfer credit back to their home institution.

In 2017, the Summer School enjoyed considerable success with almost 400 students representing 47 nationalities and 200 universities enrolling on credit-bearing modules from across UCL's faculties. In 2018, the Summer School team are aiming to welcome at least 550 students to UCL.

Drawing on UCL's academic strengths in a range of subject areas, the UCL Summer School is unique in London in its academic offering. Modules are encouraged to use London as a learning space and many include excursions or field visits in and around the city. Examples of experiential learning opportunities available to students include guided literary tours on the Literary London module and hands-on experience in the operating theatre at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) at Stanmore on the module Nerve Injury Treatment: Medicine, Science and Engineering.

The Summer School is led by the UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE), with Student Recruitment and Marketing (SRM) taking responsibility for marketing and student recruitment. Any member of academic staff interested in learning more about the benefits of getting involved with the programme should contact the Head of the UCL Summer School Rhod Fiorini for further details.
