About the Fulbright UK Summer Institutes

The Fulbright UK Summer Institutes are three to four week programs for US undergraduates to study in the UK. There are several Institutes available each year and each Institute is hosted by a different university, focusing on specific historical or cultural context or a subject or topic. Depending on the Institute, students have an opportunity to:
– study alongside leading academics and professionals
– experience cultural and social events
– visit museums, galleries, castles, battlegrounds, stately homes and areas of scenic beauty
– receive credit to transfer to their home institution, etc
Students from all disciplines can apply but the Fulbright commission is seeking for “well-rounded students who have ambassadorial qualities”.
