International Summer School at the University of Exeter – 1 July to 22 July 2021 and Online Programme to be confirmed

Take the chance in the summer to study abroad on our accredited courses worth up to 15 ECTS/8 US credits, whether it’s for credit transfer towards your degree, study something completely different to your normal course of study or even just a chance to experience one of the most beautiful regions in the UK.

Each course is worth up to 7.5 ECTS/4 US credits and is taught by our world-class faculty on our stunning campus in Streatham along with external experts in the field brought in to ensure understanding of the subject area from different angles and small class sizes to maximise the chance to engage with your classmates and the academic staff at each turn.

Our programme also includes a vibrant social programme including a 4 day stay in London, trips to beautiful coastal locations as well as historic cities and many more options such as a chance to visit the Warner Brother Studios, home of Harry Potter and one of the largest National Parks in the UK.

Stay with us on our beautiful campus in private ensuite accommodation with shared kitchens only 5 minutes’ walk from the city centre and experience everything the charming city of Exeter has to offer.

One of the greatest advantages of joining us for the International Summer School is the chance to meet people from all over the world, get to know each and most importantly expand your knowledge and understanding of the world from many more perspectives. Our entire academic programme and social programme is geared towards ensuring you can make the most of the opportunity to explore each part of the world from the people around you.

Our programme fee includes all accommodation, transport once you are in the UK, the social programme and your tuition.
