About the University of Leeds Summer Program

The University of Leeds is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside the UK has to offer. Located in the county of West Yorkshire in the north of England, Leeds is approximately 2 hours from London and 2 hours from Edinburgh. Founded in 1904, the University of Leeds is the UK's second largest university with 30,500 students from over 130 countries. Study Abroad and exchange students come to Leeds from North America and continental Europe as well as Asia, South America and Australia seeking to internationalize their student experience. The University campus is a mix of old and new. State-of-the-art learning and teaching facilities coexist with impressive landmark buildings of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Leeds is internationally renowned for research and teaching excellence. The University has won more environmental awards than any other UK university, including the 2006 Green Gown Award for Waste Management and the 2007 Award for Continuous Improvement.

What you'll study

Modules have been carefully chosen so that you can learn first-hand what the region of Yorkshire has on its doorstep and further afield. Whether you love going to history-making gigs, listening to the greatest rock and pop music of our time, or losing yourself in a classic novel, we have academic modules that you'll wish could be a full degree. Maybe you'd rather imagine yourself a character in 'Brideshead Revisited' walking the corridors of a great country house adorned in priceless art work, or a future Olympian gearing up for the 2012 Olympics and learning how the Olympic Games began and continues – either way,  we will also be able to satisfy your academic curiosities!

The Summer School is 4 weeks long and is composed of two 2-week blocks, running back-to-back. Each module is worth 10 Leeds credits which is equivalent to 3 US credits, so you will go home with 6 US credits overall. You will be able to select  2 modules, one in each block:
