Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

What are the dates of the 2022 UCL Summer School? 

Session One: 4th July - 22nd July 2022

Session Two: 25th July - 12th August 2022

Will modules be taught on campus?

The current intention is that all UCL Summer School 2022 modules will be taught in person on the UCL campus in London. However, in the event that UK government guidance relating to Covid-19 changes and UCL determines that it is no longer considered safe to teach in person, Summer School modules will be taught online where possible. In these circumstances, Summer School students will be offered the opportunity to study their modules online where possible, or students may cancel their place on the Summer School. If a student cancels their place on the Summer School in these circumstances, the student will be entitled to a full refund of their Summer School tuition fee and application fee.

What happens if I can't travel to London because of travel restrictions in my own country?
In the event that it is not possible for a student to travel to London because of unforeseen travel restrictions in their own country, the Summer School will make every effort to ensure that they can participate remotely.  If this is not possible, students may cancel their place on the Summer School. If a student cancels their place on the Summer School in these circumstances, the student will be entitled to a full refund of their Summer School tuition fee and application fee.
What is UCL doing to ensure students are safe on campus?

You can find all the relevant information on how UCL is keeping the campus safe here.

What is the workload of a UCL Summer School module?

All modules consist of 45 teaching hours and approximately 100 additional study hours. 

Will there be a Social and Cultural Programme?

Our Social and Cultural Programme is an integral aspect of the programme and we are planning to organise a variety of events and activities to ensure our students enjoy time outside of the classroom and meet others from across the programme. Some events will be completely free of charge while some will require payment (e.g. theatre nights in the West End and weekend trips outside of the city).  In the event that UCL guidance relating to Covid-19 determines that any social or culturual activities are no longer safe to go ahead, we may need to make adjustments to the programme.

Can I stay in UCL accommodation?

Yes. Details on accommodation for our 2022 programme will be released in due course.

When will I get my results?

Provisional results will be made available in August but transcripts will not be sent until mid-September. All UCL Summer School assessment results need to be formally ratified by a Board of Examiners, which meets in the first week of September. Transcripts follow after this meeting.

How long will my UCL Summer School English language test certificate be valid for?

All certificates are valid for two years.
