About The Program

Spend the summer in iconic London. University College London, the most popular English university for UC students, offers a large selection of summer courses for a variety of majors. Program activities include cultural excursions, shows in the West End, comedy nights, day trips outside of London, and a boat party. With London’s typical cloudy weather cleared away, summer becomes the season for festivals, music events, street markets, outdoor movies, and all-around cheerful moods. Find your favorite beer garden or rooftop restaurant to savor the sunsets. Hop on a shared city bike to find lunch at one of the many pop-up eateries, then stroll the famous garden squares of Bloomsbury.

Where you'll study

Forward thinking, modern, and unique among traditional British universities, the University College London (UCL) is a special place to live and study. The campus is a regular location choice for Hollywood films. Situated in the heart of London, you won’t have to walk far to see one of London’s historic green squares. Originally built as private garden spaces for aristocrats, the historic Fitzroy Square, Gordon Square, and Tavistock Square are now populated entirely by students—especially on sunny days. UCL has its very own English pub, the Huntley, which hosts social events and offers student discounts. Don’t miss the chance to study indoors at least once in the spectacular Donaldson Reading Room in the Main Library. If you enjoyed the movie Inception, a film by a UCL alumnus, stop by the Flaxman Gallery where some of the scenes were shot.
