The number one question we get asked is ‘What can I study at Undergraduate Summer School?’ so we thought we would give you the answer here!
You can choose from 15 modules, in each session, taught by our faculties and covering various areas such as:
Please visit our website to see the full list of modules available.
King’s faculty and staff ensure you experience our globally-renowned, research-led teaching through interactive seminars, lectures, group discussions, off-campus excursions and guest speakers across all modules.
So, if you love languages and have always been fascinated by the origins of some languages maybe Ancient Greek or Latin are the modules for you. Or, if your passion is in the arts and you would like to explore all the culture that surrounds London perhaps Museum of London: Curating the City is for you. Maybe you are thinking more globally, and this is just one of the many international experiences that you want to have. In that case, International Business, International Relations or International Commercial Law might be the modules that will open your horizons worldwide.
Finally, this is a great opportunity to get a taste of what University life in the heart of London is really like. If you are considering further studies in the UK or at King’s, why not try before you buy?

Higher Education institutions across the world encourage their students to expand their knowledge and gain experience outside the classroom. Throughout the year they organise events and often invite external guests to facilitate that interaction.
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, one of our partner universities in Italy, has recently hosted an International Day for their students and invited institutions from different parts of the world to attend. The event is held to encourage their students to have international experiences such as summer schools, internships, language courses and volunteering.
It was our great pleasure travelling to Milan to participate at this fantastic event and meet so many people interested in our Summer School.
The event wouldn’t be the same without our lovely student ambassadors and alumni who did an amazing job helping us with the enquires of many students. Who better than our alumni to talk about Summer at Kings? Plus, it was great to see them again, now in their country and see their passion and enthusiasm about their Summer at King’s.
Does your School, College or University have an international day coming up? If yes, we truly encourage you to go, explore and make the most of all the opportunities available. International events are a great way to discover new opportunities.
Go and explore the world, make unforgettable memories and get out of your comfort zone.

The summer holidays have come to an end and a new academic year has started.
Hundreds of students, from over 90 nations joined us this summer and had an unforgettable life experience.
After a sunny and warm summer, it is now time to focus on studies again.
But it is not a new start only for students, our team is already planning 2019 summer. At King’s our team works with research colleagues all year to design summer programmes that give access to pioneering research that is destined to have a truly global impact on communities, wherever they are located in the world.
To the students who attended our Summer School, we hope your experience keeps you inspired throughout the year. And to all university students – we wish you a fantastic academic year.
Until next summer…

When choosing what to do during my last summer of high school, I knew that I wanted to do something that was meaningful and not just spend it as I had done previously – unwinding on vacation for eight weeks. At first, I wasn’t too sure how I exactly wanted to spend it, but I did know that I wanted to spend my summer doing something that would enhance my abilities academically before entering into my last year of my IB.
I moved from London to Singapore five years ago and I saw the summer programme as an opportunity to revisit my home country alone, and have a chance to experience what it was like to live in London again five years later, but this time as a student.
What made King’s College London’s Summer School different was that it was all about giving students the experience of an undergraduate course of their choice, but also the experience as a university student living in London. I chose the Business Management course as it the subject I want to study in university, so I felt like this was an opportunity for me to ensure that it was everything I had expected.
When I first arrived at my accommodation, I was greeted by so many other eager students that I instantly began to make friends (many of whom I am still close with today) and began to feel a lot more comfortable than I initially expected.
The university offers you two weeks filled with undergraduate-level content, with varying teaching styles. We had lectures in the morning followed by seminar sessions in the afternoon, and within the two weeks, each course had two different course-specific excursions. We had the freedom to hang out at our own leisure, as long as we adhered to the curfew, which was a great aspect of the summer school because it offered students a lot of independence to make their own decisions. The closing event party was held at the Bush House roof terrace, which had a panoramic view of Central London. After singing at the talent show, I had the opportunity to perform again at the closing event party which I really enjoyed, as music is one of my passions.
Attending the programme gave me the chance to experience what studying at university felt like, but more specifically what it is like to study at King’s. I feel a lot more prepared to go to university in 2019 and reassured me that I am choosing the right course. It offered me both an ample amount of academic and social opportunities to participate in.
I would recommend it to anyone, whether you plan to study in the UK or are still unsure as to which courses you wish to study when you eventually go to university. King’s will offer you a fantastic experience both academically and socially.
My summer at King’s College London was by far the best summer experience I have ever had.

This summer, we welcomed more than 100 students on the Pre-University Taster summer programme where they explored subject areas such as Business, Law, Science, Engineering, History and Literature.
Our Science students visited the Science Museum with their tutor, Professor Thais Russomano and our Law students had a tour of the Royal Courts of Justice located five minutes away from our Strand campus when they were not in class learning about international human rights laws.
The Business students discussed entrepreneurship, marketing and operations and the History and Literature students explored London through an interdisciplinary lens combining themes from both subject areas. Meanwhile, the Engineering students built educational tools out of Lego with Dr Jamie Barras.
In addition to their classes, the students also had a chance to attend personal statement workshops, admissions talks as well as sessions led by the respective faculties and departments at King’s. They all received a certificate of participation at the end of the week and what we hope is a better understanding of what it is like to study a certain subject at university level. See you in the summer of 2019!

This Summer is one of the top 10 warmest summers on record in the UK, according to the Met Office, which makes it already unforgettable for many people. But it is particularly memorable for our students who decided to take part of their summer holiday to learn, explore and go on an adventure to King’s College London.
To many people, that was the first time that they have taken a flight alone, travelled away from their countries, spoken English 24/7 and met people from so many countries in a short period of time.
No one can get bored in London, especially during summer, and it’s often difficult to choose what to do during free time.
Most of our programmes include excursions and tours which help our students to explore London attractions. West End Theatre, Harry Potter Tour, Imperial War Museum, Royal Courts of Justice and the Wellcome Collection are some of the places where our students have been.
The photos below will certainly be in our 2018 Summer photo album.

Summer programmes are an amazing opportunity to have an educational experience in the United Kingdom. It can be different from other countries, and that’s what make it unique.
Classes are a mix of ways to learn, from academic sessions to tours, guest Lectures, case studies, debates, critical thinking sessions, workshops, but it also involves independent study.
We really encourage students to participate in classes, express their ideas and views, and share it with all their peers.
It’s not always easy to adjust to a new education system, but often it makes you see things from a different perspective.

Time is flying, and while some students are starting packing to go home some are packing to join us for session two next week.
Australia, South Africa, Kenya, Mexico and USA are some of the destinations from around 90 countries that students are heading back over the next few days.
Spending a few weeks away from home could seem long but in fact once you get here it flies by and most people would probably like to stay longer. Hopefully some will feel inspired to return and spend a longer period at King’s.
During the last three weeks students had lectures taught by King’s academics, met industry professionals, had hands-on experience, worked in groups, went on excursions and of course explored London in their free time.
To those who are going back home, have a good journey back and keep exploring, and to those who are arriving in London this weekend, have a safe journey, we are looking forward to meeting you all.
