Summer sports study abroad in the UK

In celebration of the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, several of API’s partner universities in the UK are conducting sports and Olympic-themed courses this summer, including the following:

Leeds, England

The University of Leeds International Summer School features a course called “The Olympic Games: Sport in the UK” during the first two weeks of the summer session. What is particularly interesting and unique about this course is it will focus on quintessential UK sports such as fencing and archery. Leeds is sufficiently removed from the hubbub of London, but close enough to visit and feel a part of the experience – a nice combination!

London, England

The University of Westminster is offering several Olympic and sport-related courses during its summer program, such as “Leadership and the Olympics,” “London’s Olympics – 1908 and 1948: Sport in a Global City,” “Fundamentals of Sports Nutrition,” “Sports Massage Therapy,” and “London, the Olympics and the Quest for a Legacy: Can the Games Reconnect a Divided City?”

Stirling, Scotland

Known as Scotland’s “University for Sporting Excellence”, The University of Stirling is offering a course during its second summer session called “Sports Management and Culture: A European Perspective.”

Even if you aren’t able to participate in the Olympic fever, at least you can still learn about and be a part of it where it is happening!
