Summer 2022 Updates
The Summer School will announce periodic updates on Summer 2022 Study Abroad and the status of individual programs.
Health, safety, and security is paramount in Summer School Study Abroad program planning and execution. Harvard Summer School is closely monitoring COVID-19 developments at our program locations with Harvard Global Support Services (GSS). As noted in the current University Travel Guidance, Harvard University is committed to facilitating travel under safe conditions. The Summer School intends to resume study abroad programs as conditions warrant while being mindful of the significant uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and varying regional conditions. We encourage you to also visit the general Harvard University COVID-19 information page.
The launch of Harvard Summer School 2022 programs will remain subject to an array of factors including, but not limited to, whether changes are made to the University Travel Guidance, the evolving public health situation, and any travel restrictions that may be imposed by Harvard or by government agencies.
Individual Study Abroad program start dates, course content or program design may be adjusted with evolving in-country health and safety considerations. During the program dates, personal travel outside of the program country will not be allowed. Programs are not guaranteed to run but the Summer School will remain in contact with students who open a study abroad application and communicate any cancellations as early as possible.
