Summer Abroad

Exchange summary

Summer Abroad programmes are short term summer placements, either participating in a summer school or a research project.

Summer Abroad programmes do not count towards your degree and add no extra time to your studies. This means you can benefit from an university-supported study abroad experience outside of your degree programme.

You can apply to many of the summer options regardless of your degree programme or your year of study. In some cases, you will be able to take subjects from outside your chosen academic discipline.

You can apply for a Summer Abroad programme in any year of study except final-year (the only exceptions are Summer in the USA @ UGA and Summer in Malaysia @ Monash University which are also open to final-year students).

Tuition free places

We have a number of tuition-free places available on our summer programmes. Students awarded with these places will only pay for accommodation and spending money. Recipients of the Liverpool Bursary will be prioritised for tuition-free places. 

For a number of summer programmes, Liverpool students who do not qualify for tuition-free places receive a discount on the regular fee.
