Every summer, UCL welcomes students from around the world to study for credit in the heart of London.
With a wide range of modules on offer from many of its renowned academic departments, you can choose the subject best suited to your academic or personal interests. In the QS World University Subject Rankings for 2016, UCL features in the global top-ten universities in eight subject areas and the global top-twenty universities in sixteen subject areas. UCL is world-leading and many of the module tutors on the programme are leading academics in their fields. Modules are taught on the Bloomsbury campus and include lectures, seminars, group work as well as excursions and field trips to areas of interest in and around London. Outside of the classroom, they offer dedicated accommodation within walking distance of UCL and a varied programme of social events to help you make the most of your time in the capital. Join UCL summer school for three or six weeks and discover how UCL can help you realise your potential!
The UCL Summer School is divided into two Sessions, each spanning three weeks. You can choose to attend Session One, Session Two or both. All students study one module per Session. Each module offers 45 contact hours (15 hours per week), and students are expected to spend an additional 100 hours on assignments and independent study. Class sizes are kept small to encourage interaction with tutors and classmates.
All UCL Summer School modules are worth 0.5 course units in the UCL system. A 0.5 course unit is equivalent to 4 credits in the US system, 7.5 ECTS in the European system and 15 credits in the UK system.
The way in which modules are assessed depends on subject area and normal practice in that particular discipline. At the end of the programme, all students will receive a UCL transcript and certification of attendance. Upon completion of the programme, students will also be granted the status of UCL Associate Alumni.
