Study Abroad & Summer School
The Department of Theology & Religious Studies has vibrant links to universities in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. Each year numerous international students decide to take modules in the Department, and a significant number of King's students are studying abroad.
The Study Abroad Programme
The Department welcomes undergraduate students from around the world via our Study Abroad scheme, through which you can choose to spend up to a year studying at King's College London as part of your degree programme elsewhere.
Incoming Study Abroad students can take any module offered by the Department. Typically Study Abroad students follow precisely the same patterns of study and assessment as the 'home' students registered on their undergraduate degrees at King's.
Prospective Study Abroad students should contact the Study Abroad office. The Department's Study Abroad co-ordinator is Dr Andrea Schatz, who welcomes queries from applicants wanting to know more about the Departmental provisions for International students.
The Department is also well-represented at the College's Summer School, a high quality and intensive academic programme open to students from around the world, offering university-level summer courses which use a fresh approach to the study of traditional academic subjects.
Further information can be found on the Summer School website.
If you are currently studying in the Department in your first or second year, and are interested in studying abroad in your second year (one or two terms) or third year (one term), you may consider one of the following destinations:
