Summer school

Enhance your academic program abroad

Study abroad with other international students for up to four weeks this summer at one of our partner’s universities. Deadlines and programs vary in dates and duration.

Participate in seminars, lectures, workshops and field trips which directly relate to your field of study. Professional academics and practitioners will be on hand to provide expert guidance and support.

Benefits of summer programs 

Great opportunity for first-time travelers/students with work/family obligations

  • An International summer school is an excellent first experience abroad. For those students who are interested in going abroad but have never travelled alone.
  • 3 weeks abroad is enough time to experience travel without being away too long and easier to fit with your current family and work obligations.

 Easy Planning

  • Residence & meal plans are usually pre-organized, so your planning is very easy and hassle-free.
  • The host institutions organize the social program, so you make friends fast and don’t miss out on visiting local attractions.
  • All you need to do is arrange your travel, secure your insurance and take care of any visa requirements.

 Courses available for students in all disciplines

  • Our partners offer so many differetn courses, so there is an opportunity for you regardless of your program of study.
  • You will find many courses that UNB is not offering, so this is your chance to select courses that you are passionate about but can’t take at UNB.
  • Go to the same location with your UNB friends in other programs
  • Courses abroad can be counted towards your UNB degree with pre-approval from your academic advisor. Courses abroad will not affect your GPA.
  • The summer school programs can provide you with between 4 and 6 academic credit hours.

 Help every step along the way

  • We are here to support you before you leave. We offer a mandatory pre-departure workshop and other forms of help to make sure you are prepared for your international experience and have a smooth and successful abroad experience.
