Summer Abroad Courses

Give your summer months some international flair! York University summer abroad courses have a combined format, with one to three weeks of class instruction at the York campus, and up to four weeks abroad with your classmates and York professor in another country. We hope to be able to offer the following study abroad programs in summer 2021.


Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the emergence of variants of concern and the varying pace of global vaccination, all international outbound mobility programs have been suspended until at least December 31, 2021. We hope to deliver LA&PS Summer Study Abroad courses again in Summer 2022. Please check back here regularly for updates over the next year, or contact Study Abroad Coordinator Katie Gribbons at katiegr@yorku.ca for more information.
