What Happens if I Study Two Courses?

If you decide to study two courses during your time with us, please be aware that it will be an increased workload as you will studying on both timetable 1 and 2. Some courses are not suitable for studying in conjunction with others as they involve field trips over multiple days but this is specified in the courses list. You will also have additional time at the end of the programme in which to complete your assessment.


We offer a variety of scholarships towards your total programme fee, dependent on whether you meet the criteria of said scholarship. 

There are also several other organisations which will provide scholarships but do rely on a bit of research. A good place to start is your local British Council.

Gilman Scholarship 5000$ Please see Gilman Scholarship for eligibility

Partnership Recognition Partial scholarship (£500)  Please check with your home institution to see whether we have extended this scholarship to your university and then apply as normal. This will be automatically added to your programme fee upon successful application.
GPA Celebration Partial scholarship (£500) This will be automatically applied to any successful application that supports a GPA of 3.7 or above. This must be evidenced by a recent official transcript.

Please note only one scholarship can be applied to a programme fee at any one time. Where an applicant is eligible to receive more than one scholarship, the largest scholarship amount will take precedence. 

This does not include the Early Bird Discount which is applied on top of any scholarships.

Care has been taken in the preparation of the programme but the University reserves the right to cancel or alter the courses available, the content of courses, day trips or social events due to unforeseen circumstances.

In the unlikely event that a course is cancelled you will be offered a place on another course or a full refund.

We also require each student to sign our Code of Conduct. If any student should breach this Code of Conduct, we reserve the right to request the student leave the programme at their own expense. In this instance, no refund shall be provided.

My time spent on the International Summer School was easily some of the best three weeks I have experienced in my life. The history pathway offered an intellectually stimulating group of lectures that broadened my understanding of studying history and the many facets that a student of history has at their disposal. Aside from the educational portion of the program, the trip to London was a wonderful way to break the ice between all of the students while exploring London together. Meeting people from over thirty different countries is something I will never be able to forget. Everyone brings their own experiences and views, with opinions that force us to open our minds and delve out of our comfort zones. I highly recommend the University of Exeter Summer School to anyone that wants an intellectual, cultural, and social experience abroad that is not only affordable but also rewarding in every aspect of the word.
