Summer Opportunities

This page provides information about summer school opportunities offered by Durham University's partner institutions. Most summer schools are offered in English, however, there are a number of programmes where you can study in a foreign language.

Typically summer opportunities are advertised from January onwards. Old summer opportunities are still listed here, as some are offered on an annual basis. We will publish opportunities once they become available. If an opportunity is not (re-)listed or updated, it is because we have not received information about it.

The International Office will provide guidance where possible, however the onus would be on the student to complete any necessary application. All fees and costs are payable by the student to the partner directly.

Please let us know if you make an application, or if you have any feedback on a summer programme you have attended.
