The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for US citizens to come to the UK. These summer programmes provide the opportunity for US undergraduates (aged over 18), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, to come to the UK on a three or four week academic and cultural summer programme.
Participants in these programmes will get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic programme at a highly regarded UK University, explore the culture, heritage and history of the UK and develop their academic ability by improving presentation, research and communication skills.
If you have any questions about the programme, please read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
The US-UK Fulbright Commission gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Michael W Louis Charitable Trust and the individual universities in making these summer institutes possible.

I am forever grateful to the Fulbright Commission and look forward to contributing to the programme. My three weeks abroad uncovered my potential and changed the view I have of myself and the world...—2015 Summer Institute Participant
