Summer abroad opportunities are a fanastic way to gain cultural and international experience in addition to your studies. Programmes typically range from 2 - 8 weeks and provide you with the chance to gain cultural, volunteering and/or academic experience in another country. Even if travel isn't possible during the summer months, we have options for you to complete a variety of virtual programmes with international partners, delivering programmes online via their networks across the globe.

All programmes are offered subject to full travel approval.Students will be required to complete the university’s international travel approval process in order to participate in summer programmes and receive any associated funding.
