Other Exchange Opportunities

As well as our study abroad programmes, we offer short-term exchange options such as summer schools.

Short-term Exchange Opportunities

Short-term exchange opportunities are a great option if you want to pick up a new language or explore a new topic over the summer without putting a big dent in your bank balance. Or if you really want to study abroad but can't leave Edinburgh during term-time.

Summer schools offer a great mix of study and social events, enabling you to learn something new as well as experience a different culture. The best part is that you can do all of this whilst spending your time with other students from all over the world.

As well as being a great opportunity and a fun way to spend your summer, having a summer school experience looks great on your CV. It will help you to expand your network, grow your international friendship group and may even help with your degree.

If you think that a summer school may be a good option for you, check out some of the opportunities we have available. We suggest doing your research and doing some price comparisons, but they all tend to be competitively priced to make it as affordable as possible.

If you have found a summer school that works for you, feel free to get in touch with your programme leader to discuss any possible academic credit you may be able to get. You can also contact the Global Mobility Team who will be able to offer support and guidance with your application if you need it.

You can find other opportunities to study, work or volunteer abroad for the summer on the British Council website.
