We are very pleased to announce that our global experiences including Semester 2, 2022 Exchange and Winter 2022 Experiences will recommence on a country-by-country basis. We understand how important these opportunities are for you, and our teams have been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure these can be offered safely as we continue to monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global safety considerations. 

Make sure to research your travel destination(s) and prepare accordingly, by reviewing all the FAQs.

Courses taught during the London School of Economics Summer School are based on regular LSE undergraduate courses. Choose from a wide variety of courses offered in Sessions One and Two taught by Lecturers who are experts in their chosen fields. 

IMPORTANT:

The London School of Economics Summer School (Session 1) will conflict with UQ's semester 1, 2022 exam period by 2 days. Students participating in the London School of Economics Summer School (Session 1) should not make any financial commitments, including fees to London School of Economics Summer School, accommodation or flights, until their examination timetables are released. Students will be responsible for checking their own exam timetable to establish whether they will have an exam that will conflict with the start of the London School of Economics Summer School (Session 1).

Students are expected to attend any scheduled exam at UQ, and will not be eligible for deferred or alternate assessment or exams re-sits, due to timetable conflicts with a Winter experience.  

Your UQ Faculty will take no responsibility for students who pursue the London School of Economics Summer School (Session 1) and fail or don’t attend their final exam at UQ.

Matthew - 2022

"I honed my networking and interpersonal skills while on exchange, connecting with various peoples from different cultures and countries. It was a challenge to effectively communicate my meaning from Australian-English to an English some non-native speakers would appreciate, so I worked on how I communicate and really took the time to get to know how others think. I believe this will heavily contribute to future employability."

 

 

 

 

 

Sophia - 2022

"The course I undertook definitely broadened by perspective and introduced me to a variety of interesting pathways and topics, which has encouraged me to consider the professional path I may take and what it could involved. It has taught me to think bigger and look towards the bigger picture."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Georgia - 2022

"I absolutely loved the course that I did. It was taught in a really brilliant way that was fantastic at teaching and then consolidating knowledge. Even though it was very intensive, the way it was taught meant that I felt like I knew it from learning it straight away and we were given so many resources that helped expand this knowledge as well."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah - 2022

"Even though it was only a short-term experience, I think I really grew into myself and gained a lot of confidence within myself and in social situations. I was privileged enough to travel Europe and deep dive into London life whilst making friendships worldwide that will last a lifetime and I'll remember for a long time!"
