The Fulbright UK Summer Institutes are three-to-four week programmes for US undergraduate students. Participants can explore the culture, heritage and history of the UK while experiencing higher education at a UK university.

  • Visit museums, galleries, castles, battlegrounds, stately homes and areas of scenic beauty
  • Receive credit to transfer to their home institution

  • Become an ambassador for studying in the UK

The majority of Institute costs are covered, including:

  • Return US-UK airfare
  • Tuition and fees at the host institution
  • Accommodation and meals
  • In some cases a small daily allowance

To be eligible, students must:
