What are you doing this summer? 

If you are looking for an affordable way to get some international experience, summer study abroad programmes have the potential to be life altering if you're willing to embark on the adventure. 
Spending a summer studying abroad in another country may increase your awareness and understanding of the world around you, while enjoying academic, career, intercultural, and personal growth. Find out about the short-term study abroad opportunities available to current University of Plymouth students.
