Summer schools

International summer schools are an excellent way to gain study abroad experience for a short period of time. They offer the opportunity to take taught courses at international universities.

Summer schools usually last between one and six weeks with programmes varying widely from very specialist courses to more general cultural immersion programmes.

As these programmes are offered during the holiday period, any credits you gain overseas do not count towards your NTU degree programme, however, this does mean that you are free to study whatever is of interest to you (subject to the individual eligibility criteria of the Summer School).

Universities usually start to advertise their summer schools from December/January onwards – and we will add them to this page as soon as we can so please keep checking!


There are normally tuition fees to pay, as well as the cost of your flights, accommodation, visas (if applicable), insurance, and food. Financial support may be available by applying for one our Travel Scholarships.


NTU Global also offers International summer school scholarships to some of our partner universities, especially in China! These scholarships will help towards the costs of tuition and accommodation fees so please check regularly and be sure to apply!
