Summer Exchange Programs

internship Program w732

Summer programs allow students to participate in designed and structured courses during the summer semester in an unlimited number of institutions (not limited to partner universities). Most summer programs are not part of the academic calendar, and therefore are not included under the exchange agreements.

Application to summer programs is scheduled by the host institution and is not via the exchange programs. However, the Student Exchange Coordinator would be happy to assist you in the application process and contacts with the host institutions. Tuition of summer programs varies across institutions, and can be quite costly. For this reason, we have provided below a list of subsidized summer programs, or programs that offer some financial aid. If you find other programs that interest you we would be happy to hear about them and assist you in the application process.
