Georgetown University Exchange

an academic exchange with Georgetown University, for a summer session

This Exchange Programme will allow 3 undergraduate students to attend a summer session at Georgetown University in summer 2017.

During the summer months, Georgetown University becomes home to international students from around the world. The campus is situated in a beautiful, historic neighbourhood of Washington, D.C., giving international students the unique opportunity to fully engage in and experience the rich culture and diversity of the US capital.

At Georgetown, St John's students will have the opportunity to engage with former diplomats, public health officials, economists, scientists, and experts across a wide breadth of professions. They will also be invited to take part in extracurricular events, such as museum trips, baseball games and kayaking.

The programme, which St John's students can apply for, will run from 9th July to 10th August 2018.

Courses

The students will be enrolled as full-time students and will have to choose two three-credit summer session undergraduate level courses (for a total of six academic credits).
