About our summer schools

If you're an undergraduate student at Sussex, you can apply for a £400 bursary to go to a summer school managed and administered by our partner universities.

The summer schools below are an excellent opportunity to experience studying abroad for a shorter period of time, and to study outside your main degree areas.

You also get a chance to meet students from all over the world, experience a new culture and gain international experience for future job opportunities or further studies.

Your time will be a mixture of academic study, social and cultural events. There is often the opportunity to take a language course as well.

Upon completion of the programme, students will receive a transcript for any academic course(s) taken. Students should not that credits will not be transferrable to their Sussex degree.

How to apply

Submit an application to Sussex Abroad first, as the number of bursaries we have is limited. Do not apply to the other university without having talked to us. You can only list one university in your application. The summer school does not need to be related to your main degree area.

This is an internal application between you and Sussex, and you will be instructed to apply to the other university's summer school afterwards.

Before you apply (internally)

  • Bursaries are only offered to year 1 and year 2 undergraduate Sussex students. Those in year 3 of a four-year programme, who will be returning to Sussex to complete and finish their degree in 19/20, can also apply.
  • Make sure the summer school programme does not clash with any other commitments you have for the summer, nor with any sits or resits you have at Sussex. It is your responsibility to check whether you have any exams due to take place in the summer, which you may need to prepare or study for while you are attending the summer school abroad.
  • Ensure you meet the entry requirements for that institution. Some programmes need you to have specific knowledge in that area. Some programmes are only aimed at advanced undergraduate students in year 2. Do not apply for a programme you are not eligible for.
  • Do check, beforehand, that the programme you are interested in still has places by visiting the other university's website. Some courses, especially in Humboldt and Utrecht, fill up very quickly.
  • Students should not apply to universities located in their home countries if possible. Priority will be given to students who are not applying to their home country.
  • Make sure you are aware of the costs summer schools incur. For the majority of programmes, tuition fees are not waived and you will be responsible to pay for these.

Washington St Louis Summer School

The pictures and captions below have been provided by Hannah, who studies LLB Law and took part in Washington St Louis' summer school in 2018:
Photo 1: We all went over to Forest Park (a short walk from campus) to watch a film on the big screen and got some food over there. I think this event happens weekly it's very popular so loads of food trucks come out for it which was great.

Photo 2: We were taken on a tour of St Louis at the weekend and started off at the old court house pictured here.

Photo 3 and 4: We went up The Gateway Arch that day and saw views from 630 feet! So high up you could almost feel the thing swaying in the wind. The grass beneath had been trampled on because of a 4th of July party over it a few weeks earlier.

Photo 5: This was taken outside of a place in St Louis (can't remember what it was called) where you basically climbed on stuff and slides etc. you can just about see a bus hanging off the roof that you could climb into.

Photo 6: Although there were lots of activities going on all the time, my timetable for class (Bioethics and Logic) was pretty packed. I took this picture on the way back to dorms after the last class - the campus is beautiful I recommend finding pictures online because this does not do it justice!
