The Summer Abroad Programmes are back and allow you to study or work abroad during your summer break!

The opportunities are fully funded and you can travel for one to four weeks to Turkey, Belgium or the Netherlands!

Don't miss out on your chance to travel abroad and create an impact as the deadline for the applications is on Tuesday 31 January 2023.

If you are an undergraduate student, you might be eligible to apply and the Global Opportunities team at City will help you with the application process as well as travel and accommodation arrangements.

Where can I go and what will I learn?

  • Common Purpose Programme in Istanbul, Turkey for 4 weeks - develop your leadership skills while working on a real-life project and present your work.
  • Effective Global Communications Skills Programme at the University of Groningen, Netherlands for 1 week – designed to improve your intercultural communication skills.
  • Sustainable Global Experience in Brussels, Belgium for 1 week - can help you to strengthen your employability and cultural skills.

A current BA Journalism student had this to say about his experience studying abroad during Summer 2022 through City:

Studying Marketing in Madrid over the summer was an opportunity I will treasure for a lifetime. I simply cannot regret a single second and will always be grateful to City.

I now have lifelong friends from all across the world as well as a diploma from this opportunity. I’ve developed in more ways than I could have expected.

If you’re even considering this opportunity, DO IT! You can’t regret wanting to prosper and grow!

Here’s how it works:

If your application is successful, you will complete a set of workshops on the subject of leading global change, and practical guidance on travelling abroad to prepare for your summer programme.

Then, you will complete one of the programmes specified above over the 2023 summer break. After completing a series of reflection workshops, you will receive the Global Skills Award certificate.
