Summer Opportunities

Summer Opportunities

As an Urban Studies major, you might find it beneficial to attend a summer school programme. Summer school programmes are a great way to explore applied aspects of Urban Studies, such as urban design or architecture or to build other skills. You can also connect with like-minded students and immerse yourself in a new city.

You may refer to these websites for some possible programmes for the upcoming summer. These include programmes in development studies, architecture and design and social science.
