Course overview

Undergraduate Summer School modules are intellectually stimulating, dynamic and highly participative. They are taught by leading King’s academics who are experts in their field. Classes are highly international with students from all over the world.

Each module comprises 150 study hours, including teaching, independent study and group work. Our undergraduate modules are examined to university standards and can be taken for credit towards degrees at other institutions.

This module is based on a 15-credit King’s undergraduate module and therefore typically awarded 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS. To receive credit for King's summer modules, contact your home institution to ask them to award external credit.
