UCL Summer School


Programme structure

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 Sessions.

All students study one module per Session. Each module offers 45 contact hours (15 hours per week), and students are expected to spend an additional 100 hours on assignments and independent study. Classes are student-centred with an emphasis on participation and interaction.

All UCL Summer School modules are worth 15 credits in the UK system - 15 credits are equivalent to 4 credits in the US system and 7.5 ECTS in the European system.

The way in which modules are assessed depends on subject area and normal practice in that particular discipline. Please refer to the individual module pages for specific details.

At the end of the programme, all students will receive a UCL transcript and certification of attendance. Upon completion of the programme, students will also be granted the status of UCL Associate Alumni.
