IARU Global Summer Programme
The International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) of which Cambridge is a member has been collaborating on many levels for several years now and has since 2008 offered a Global Summer Programme (GSP) - open to Cambridge undergraduate and graduate students. The IARU GSP will be offering over fifteen GSP courses to the ten IARU partners as part of the upcoming 2014 summer mobility programme. Some of the Institutions involved waive their tuition fees for incoming students, and some funding is available for Cambridge students going to other IARU GSP institutions; Santander scholarships of up to US$2,000 (c £1250) are available on a needs basis. Students are also encouraged to seek funding from other sources.
For information on the Cambridge programme as well as details on how to apply to any of the institutions involved the IARU Global Summer Programme, please visit the Institute of Continuing Education.
