King’s College London is a world-class university. We are delighted to welcome students to campus this coming summer to study with us. Our research-led teaching is world-renowned and uses group discussions, off-campus excursions and guest speakers to make summer classes as fun and as informative as possible.
Classes take place on our riverside campuses in the very heart of London, so you will be within easy reach of all the main visitor attractions enabling you to enjoy the city while you learn. Session One will run from 1 July to 19 July 2019 and Session Two will run from 22 July to 9 August 2019.
Our Summer School is a chance to immerse yourself in British culture and make friends with fellow students from around the world. Come and join us!

Classes can often be taken for credit towards degrees at other institutions, and are examined to university standards. To receive credit for King's summer classes, contact your home institution to ask them to award external credit. This class is equivalent to an undergraduate degree module and usually awarded 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS.
Use the King's Undergraduate Summer School to build your knowledge of an existing subject or to study something completely new. Most modules do not require previous knowledge of the subject which provides the opportunity to study courses out of personal interest or explore a subject for the first time.
Modules on the Undergraduate Summer School are taught at first and second undergraduate level although we often see postgraduate students and working professionals on the programme.
Tutors on the King’s Undergraduate Summer School are largely made up of King’s staff however on occasion some external tutors will be utilised to ensure we provide our students with access to a high level of teaching and learning.
