International Summer School Connections

The Institute has strong connections with universities in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada. Academics and scholars regularly avail of the Institute's facilities to conduct research. Although the majority of our participants register independently, the following Universities and Colleges regularly send students to participate in our summer school programme:

We are in the process of developing stronger links with the University of Central Missouri and Moraine Valley College, Illinois.

Commenting on the Summer Institute, Michael Scott-Kline, Director of the Fulbright Programme, said:

“We’re delighted that more American students will have the opportunity to experience life at one of the UK’s top universities. The Queen’s University Belfast Summer Institute will offer all that we would hope for in a Fulbright exchange programme: a challenging academic component, a rich and multifaceted cultural experience and an enthusiastic and welcoming host. The Institute will play a key role in deepening the relationship between the US and UK and will add something original and exciting to our 63-year old institution.”
