Short-Term Study

Group of students on a road trip

Want to study in the US? Not sure if you’re ready to go for a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree? Short-term study may be for you.

Short-term study programmes may last for a summer, semester or entire academic year and allow UK students to study in the USA without the obligation of completing a full degree programme. Short-term programmes are available at all levels, from school to postdoctoral level and can be a taster experience to see if you want to pursue longer-term study in the USA.

  • Undergraduate-level Programmes 
  • Postgraduate/Postdoctoral study and Research 
  • Pre-university / High School Exchange Programmes
  • Internships and Summer Work / Travel

The Commission also offers Awards for study and research at the postgraduate and postdoctoral levels. EducationUSA also has information on their website about short-term study.
