Partner summer schools

Students can apply for a summer school at one of our partner universities. There are some places reserved for Sheffield students and there are also 50 scholarships of up to £1,000 available.

Management School - Students sitting and talking

    Scholarships

    The following scholarships are available for students planning to attend one of our partner summer schools:

    • Santander worldwide partner summer school scholarship - 25 awards of £1,000
    • European partner summer school scholarship - 25 awards of £750

    If you want to be considered for one of the scholarships you will need to submit an application to Global Opportunities before applying to the partner university.

    Scholarship applications for 2021 summer schools will open in Autumn 2020 with a deadline of early January 2021. If not all scholarships are allocated, there will be a second round of applications in early February 2021.

    When applying for the scholarship, you should indicate which summer school you are planning to apply for. Unless you are relying on a fee waiver to be able to afford the experience, then you should select one partner only. If you are relying on a fee waiver to be able to afford the experience you may list a second option in your application. Details of which summer schools offer fee waivers are provided below.

      What happens next?

      We will announce the outcomes of the scholarship applications within a month of each deadline.

      Being awarded a scholarship does not guarantee you a place at the summer school of your choice as you will still need to apply to the partner university. This application should be made directly with the partner university. 

      If you are unsuccessful in being awarded a scholarship you can still apply for a place at a partner summer school. If you did not apply for a scholarship but want to apply for a partner summer school you can still do so.

      Destinations for summer 2020

      Partner websites may still show information for summer 2019, and we anticipate details for summer 2020 will be published in December/January. The application process and deadlines vary by summer school so you should check the partner university website carefully, especially if you have been awarded a scholarship from Global Opportunities.
