Summer in the USA - University of Georgia, Athens

The Study Abroad Team is excited to announce this amazing opportunity for Summer 2019! Spend one week in Athens and Atlanta learning about US history, culture and higher education around themes of diversity and media. The trip includes two full day trips to Atlanta to visit some of the amazing highlights of this mega-city! We'll be hosted by our partner university University of Georgia, Athens (UGA).

The trip is FULLY FUNDED - with the University of Liverpool covering all programme fees, accommodation, food, flights and entry fees to all activities. You'll just need to bring your own personal spending money!

Two members of the Study Abroad Team will also travel with you to provide support on the ground.

Who can participate?

There are 20 spaces available on the programme, all of which are reserved for students in receipt of either the Liverpool Bursary (full or partial) or Liverpool Scholars Award who have not already participated (or are due to participate) in another Liverpool Study Abroad programme.

Priority will be given to students who come from a low participation in HE postcode (according to their permenant home address), defined as Quartiles 1 & 2 according to POLAR. 

This summer programme is open to undergraduate students who, in the academic year 2018/19, are in Year 2 or above (including final year) of any programme.

How does it work?

We'll fly as a group from Manchester to Altanta, where we'll be met by colleagues from UGA and taken to the campus. Over the next week, we'll follow a mixture of morning sessions, afternoon recreational activities and two full day trips to Atlanta. To get an idea of the full itinerary, check out the indicative schedule on the Search Tool (search by University and look for "Summer in the USA").
