The year long study abroad experience is undoubtedly the most complex of the study abroad lengths as there are additional considerations to financials, academics and visa stipulations and regulations. As a year long student, you will matriculate in the Fall term with all other international and British and European students alike.
All summer programs host an international orientation session prior to the start of classes where you learn the ins and outs of being a UK university student and how to make your summer program a success. You will receive the same high standard of academic and social support term and year long students receive throughout the traditional academic year. Summer programs vary in start date and length so be sure to speak with your advisor when deciding which university program is right for you.
