The UCL Summer School 2020 has been cancelled due to the spread of Covid-19. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and refer to our Response to COVID-19 page for further information.
The UCL Summer School is divided into two Sessions, each spanning three weeks (dates can be found below). You can choose to attend Session One, Session Two or both. All students study one module per Session.
Choosing your module(s)
The majority of our modules are at level 1, which is the equivalent to first year undergraduate. Most of these modules require no prior subject knowledge, although some do prefer a background in certain areas. In addition to these, some of our modules are at level 2 meaning prior subject knowledge is required.
Teaching and quality assurance
Module leaders are highly qualified and experienced experts in their fields. All modules are research-based and designed to offer current perspectives and debates in their areas.
Classes are dynamic and interactive and there is a strong focus on 'active learning' meaning students are expected to participate individually and collaborate as a group. Where possible, alongside lectures, there will be seminars, projects and visits to sites of interest in London.
All Summer School modules are approved by the same processes as all other modules at UCL. All assessment is marked and double marked in accordance with UCL regulations and Summer School marks are formally ratified by an Examination Board.
