Short programs

We offer a wide range of opportunities for you to participate in a short-term study program during semester breaks.

More flexibility and variety

Many students find a short program allows them more options within their degree. You may wish to take a short academic course at a partner university, or complete a placement, internship, or practical work experience requirement with an overseas host. Each experience has its own entry requirements and application process; browse through to each program's page for specific information.
