International Study Abroad Programme dates

As an International Study Abroad student you can choose to join the programme for a semester or a year, and you can choose to combine study with an optional internship.

The dates of the programme follow those of the University’s academic year. If you are interested in joining us for a summer school full details are on our summer school section.

If you choose to study with us in Semester 1 (Fall) and you need to return to re-commence your degree at your home school in January, our programme is designed to facilitate this.

*Please note: If you study with us for Semester 1 (Fall) only, then alternative assessment for any modules with formal examinations will be set.  This means you will not need to return for the exam period in January but are able to leave when teaching ends prior to the winter vacation.

Semester 1 (Fall) contract dates for housing end at the official end date of the semester. If you apply to live in University accommodation please remember you are liable for the full contracted period.

Please also note that some coursework deadlines may be set in the first half of January.  If you take a module with a deadline after the winter vacation, but have to leave London before these deadlines you should try to complete all assessment before you leave. As a student it remains your responsibility to ensure you meet all submission deadlines.
