Each module has intensive teaching, independent study and group work and is examined to university standards. 

What does this course cover?

The King’s UG Summer English Language & Culture Programme is a two-week course aimed at students who want to continue developing their English language skills alongside studying aspects of UK culture on campus in London. This intensive course is for students who are at a B2 level and takes an active-learning, communicative approach to develop confidence and fluency in English.
