UCL Summer School


UCL Summer School

Every year, UCL welcomes students from universities around the world to study for 3 or 6 weeks in July and August.

With a wide range of undergraduate, credit-bearing modules on offer from many of our renowned academic departments, you can choose the subject best suited to your academic or personal interests.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the majority of UCL Summer School modules in 2021 will be taught online. In addition, a small number of modules will continue to be taught face-to-face on our central London campus, which has been reconfigured in line with government guidelines to ensure it is as safe as possible. This means that students have three options this summer:

  • Study online from anywhere in the world; or
  • Study online and stay in UCL accommodation in central London; or
  • Study face-to-face on the UCL campus (UCL accommodation optional)
We will offer additional opportunities for cultural enrichment and meeting others on the programme through a series of in-person and online events and activities. For students who do travel to London UCL offers accommodation within walking distance of campus.
Applications are now open and it is currently free to apply!
