Short programme options

A short programme is a great way to gain academic experience in another country. It can allow you to study subjects you wouldn't be able to take as part of your Leeds degree.

You have different options for short study programmes abroad: subsidised programmes and non-subsidised programmes at our partner universities.

While participation in a short programme (usually a summer school) won't count towards your Leeds degree in any way, it will still give you a valuable experience to put on your CV. If you complete a subsidised summer school it will be listed on your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR) which is part of your University of Leeds transcript.

Subsidised summer schools

The Study Abroad Office is able to offer several subsidised summer school opportunities for University of Leeds students. To take part in one of these programmes you must apply to the Study Abroad Office. Find out how to apply and read more about individual Subsidised short programmes.

Non-subsidised summer schools

There are non-subsidised short programmes at our partner universities. Read more about individual Non-subsidised short programmes.

The Study Abroad office also has information in its resource library about other non-subsidised summer school opportunities at universities around the world. You are welcome to come and browse this information in the Ziff Building, on level 11.

The Study Abroad office can give you guidance about an application to a non-subsidised summer/short programme, but we would not be able to submit the application for you. If you have found a programme you are interested in, come and speak to one of our advisers during our opening hours: 11am - 3pm on Monday - Friday.
