Summer Programmes

Group of exchange students

Each year, the University offers several places for BCU students to volunteer or study overseas at our partner institutions during the summer.  Our students have been to Europe, Brazil, China, Brunei, India, Mexico, South Korea, and Taiwan in previous years!  All students are eligible to apply.  You can find more information on summer programmes this year, available funding and how to apply on our iCity pages.

To give you a brief overview:

  • Many of our partner institutions offer free or reduced tuition fees.  Some field trips may also be included.
  • Courses are taught in English, and you may have the chance to learn another language.
  • The cost of flight tickets, everyday personal expenses, and accommodation are not included (unless clearly stated by the partner organisation).
  • You may be able to apply for a Faculty scholarship or the Go Global scholarship towards the additional costs, including Turing, the UK government's new funding scheme for students' international mobility.

Students experience a variety of cultures, with several field trips and cultural events often included.  Why not enhance your CV, broaden your horizons and make friends on the journey of a lifetime!  The institutions involved and some of our other partners may also offer semester exchange opportunities to our students.
