Summer Schools

There are a variety of summer schools and short-term programmes available to students at the University of Birmingham based in our partner institutions across the world. These are potentially excellent opportunities to gain academic, cultural and social experiences if you are not able to access longer term exchange opportunities.

If you wish to learn more please look at the summaries and follow the links for more information.  Please note that many of these placements took place over the Summer 2013.  This page is updated regularly when opportunities become available.

The Study Abroad Office do not have any funding to support a student’s participation in these summer schools. You should research the full costs, eligibility criteria and application process before you apply to any of them.

Some summer schools offer tuition fee waivers where students attending are classified as ‘exchange students’. If they require evidence from the University of Birmingham, please email n.edwards@bham.ac.uk with full details of the summer school and what the host institution require.
