Summer School

Choose from a wide variety of modules offered by many of our renowned academic departments. Most modules are taught on the Bloomsbury campus and, where possible, also make use of London as a learning space, including excursions and field trips to areas in and around the city.


UCL's Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE) offers a range of degree preparation and foundation courses for international students, as well as a diverse portfolio of summer schools.
