The UCL Summer School 2017

97% of the students in 2016 said they'd recommend the programme to a friend!

This programme gives students the chance to experience life at UCL for 3 or 6 weeks over the summer and gain credit toward their home degree. There is a soft deadline for applications on June 1st but students who do not require a visa to study in the UK, or can obtain one quickly, may apply anytime before the start of their chosen Session(s).


Programme Outline

The UCL Summer School will take place in the heart of London in July and August and is divided into two sessions, each spanning three weeks (please see dates in the right-hand column). Students can choose to attend session one, session two or both and all students study one module per session. We are offering a wide range of modules from a variety of subject areas including Health, Economics, Law, Culture, Medical Sciences and Psychology. Each module consists of 45 contact hours and is equivalent to 4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS. All modules are UCL-approved and taught by UCL academics and most feature guest speakers and excursions to places of interest. For full details on modules please visit our website.

Other features of the programme include dedicated accommodation in central London and a series of carefully curated social activities and events to ensure students make the most of their time in the British capital!


Student Testimonials

"I never thought you could learn so much at a summer school. The teachers are all experts in their field, so you learn so much from different people with different perspectives ... the people you meet are very diverse and it was really nice to make new friends ... the best thing was that you genuinely get a feeling of what it is like to study at UCL." - Anne Craanen, The Netherlands

"My summer here started with a warm welcome by the support team of the Summer School. The team offered lots of help and advice for me and my friends so we could settle at ease, along with activities to socialise and discover the culture. The social activities naturally formed an easy atmosphere for us to socialise with other summer school students without any restrictions." - Luo Long, China
