Summer School Scholarship Fund

The Summer School Scholarship Fund is available to students who have not studied abroad previously, or who will not study abroad as part of their degree at Exeter. We have identified a list of Summer schools to consider, offered by some of the world's top universities, but eligibility is not confined to students participating in these summer schools.

How much?

Summer School scholarships of £200 per week of the programme are available to eligible students. These scholarships are intended to be a contribution towards costs only. You will be expected to provide the balance, so it will be essential to budget carefully for programme fees, flights or other travel to the programme, visas and a comprehensive health and travel insurance policy.

Please note that the funding available is limited and cannot be guaranteed. Those in receipt of an award will be required to write a short report for the Outbound team upon their return. If the report is not returned to the Study Abroad team, you will be required to return your scholarship in full.


  • Evidence that the summer school is likely to enhance your university experience
  • Your participation is supported by your course leader/personal tutor
  • You are of good academic standing with a grade average of 2:2 or above
  • You have not previously been on a Study Abroad experience and are not on a degree programme which includes a period of study or work abroad.

The Global Opportunities team will check all applications for eligibility.

To apply for the scholarship you must hold an offer of a place on your chosen overseas summer school. If you wish to submit an application you can do so here.

Santander Summer Schools and Short Programme Fund

The Santander fund is a competitive grant for students from a Widening Participation background who are taking part in short-term international study or volunteering. The grant is for £1,000 and priority will be given to students who haven't undertaken a study/work abroad year. The application will be opening shortly and you'll find the link here.
