Online Summer Schools

Study programmes take place outside of term time during the summer holidays, making them ideal if you aren't able to go abroad as part of your degree programme. Take the opportunity to explore a subject unrelated to your degree, or enhance your degree-related subject knowledge, whilst enjoying an international experience.

Students are not limited to our partners when it comes to enrolling onto summer programmes. Keele advertises summer programmes at hosts that we do not have an existing partnership agreement with. If you apply for a summer school listed below, you will (with some exceptions) do this independently without direct involvement from the Keele Global Opportunities Team. This is by no means an exhaustive list so investigate other options available to you.
