The UCL Summer School offers university students and recent graduates from around the world the opportunity to study in the heart of London.
You can choose to study one or two modules in a range of subjects. Each module lasts three weeks and involves attending classes and independent study.
You'll have the option to gain credit towards your degree and take part in social events and activities designed to ensure you make the most of your time in London.
Dedicated accommodation in central London is available, for an additional fee.
The 2020 summer school has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Who this course is for
You'll need to have completed at least one year of undergraduate study at your home institution, with a 2:1 (UK scale), GPA of 3.3/4.0 (US system) or equivalent.

Teaching and structure
The summer school runs in July and August and is divided into two sessions, each spanning three weeks. You can choose to attend either session, or both, selecting one module per session.

You'll also need to complete around 100 hours of independent study over the three weeks.
All modules are taught by UCL academics, and many also feature guest speakers. The teaching style is interactive and class sizes are limited to encourage discussion and debate.
How you're assessed will depend on the module you're studying.
Modules are available in a range of subject areas including:

- Crime and security
You'll receive a UCL transcript and a certificate of attendance.
