Study Abroad Excellence Awards
King’s Study Abroad Excellence Awards are presented each semester to our most distinguished Study Abroad students in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Awards are made to candidates of outstanding quality who demonstrate in their application how their time at King’s builds on their academic record, and how it will help fulfill their personal and academic ambitions.
Students must have been accepted on to the Study Abroad programme at King’s as independent students, for at least one semester and have applied for courses equivalent to at least three quarters of their total credit value in the Schools of Humanities and/or Social Sciences and Public Policy.
Criteria for selection
Students will be selected on the basis of their overall academic performance to date and their performance in the subjects relevant to their application (up to four subjects can be selected by the student on the application form). Equally important however is the students’ case for receiving an award; each applicant must submit a personal statement, in which they reflect on how their study at King’s relates to their personal and academic development to date, and how they will be able to benefit from it in the future.
It is important to note the awards are not made purely on the basis of high academic grades or GPA; the awards panel gives equal weighting to the personal statement.
