Summer / Winter schools
Many overseas universities offer courses in the summer or winter breaks, which are the perfect chance for you to experience studying abroad without committing to a full semester or year. They can provide first-class learning experiences as well as a real taste of life in another country. You get to travel, experience another culture and improve your communication skills all at once.
If you are planning to apply for a GoGlobal grant to cover some of the participation costs, you must submit your application by 25 February 2019.
