Short-term overseas opportunities

If you are interested in a shorter experience, check out the short-term overseas opportunities available here at Lancaster University.

Summer Exchange Programme

We offer an exchange opportunity during the summer holidays for any current undergraduate Lancaster degree student with EWHA Womans University in Seoul, South Korea. The cost of tuition during the summer school is covered by the exchange programme, but participants would be responsible for their flights, accommodation and living expenses.

This is a great opportunity to try courses unrelated to your major as the credits received during the programme will not count towards your degree. During the summer programme, you will take 2 academic courses, a Korean language course and take part in hands-on cultural excursions.

To be considered for this programme, you need to apply as an exchange student.
