Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) students can broaden their horizons on one of the School’s newest modules.

The International Summer School Module launched in 2022. It provides undergraduate students with the chance to spend between two and four weeks learning at a partner university.

More than a dozen students took part in 2022. They visited Vienna, Montreal, Paris, Rouen, Nantes, Rennes, Lilles, and Singapore.

The LUMS Global Experiences Team expect the number of students enrolling for Summer 2023 will be more than double last year's total.

Students who took the module in 2022 have highlighted the benefits of their experience abroad, encouraging others to follow in their footsteps.

Accounting and Finance student Krystal Lin visited Nanyang Technology University in Singapore. Krystal said the experience taught her “to broaden my horizon and cultivate cultural awareness”.

“You will find incredible new food, social atmospheres, and traditions when you study abroad,” she added.

Sammy Sekirsky, an Advertising and Marketing student, enjoyed the career opportunities that opened up for her while she was in Paris visiting IÉSEG School of Management.

Before going to Paris, Sammy connected with Lancaster alumna Laura, who was studying at Institut Frances de la Mode, the city’s famous fashion school. After chatting online, Sammy and Laura decided to meet in Paris.

Sammy said she benefitted from meeting Laura because she posts a lot of hard-to-find fashion opportunities and jobs on LinkedIn.

Students can take the International Summer School Module as a credit-bearing module, depending on their year of study and degree programme. Those students can take one less module during term time.

The module can be taken in the summer between first and second year, second and third year, or after a student’s final year.

LUMS is offering a limited number of tuition fee-free places at select universities. The Global Experiences Team award places on a first-come, first-served basis.

There are also sixteen £400 scholarships available for students applying to the Summer School.

Accounting and Management student Erick Gilbert visited WU Vienna, Austria. Erick said he “would 100 per cent encourage my friends to study abroad”. He added: “It has motivated me to take part in future exciting study abroad experiences, as it personally made me grow as an individual and a student.”
