Course overview

Summer School modules are designed to be intensive, intellectually-stimulating short courses. They are taught by King’s academics in academic disciplines where King's has expertise. Classes are very international with students from all around the globe learning together.

Each module is 150 study hours comprising intensive teaching, independent study and group work and is examined to university standards. Comparable to an in-semester 15-credit King’s undergraduate module and therefore typically awarded 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS, many summer students ask their home institution to award them external credit for their King's summer module to use towards their degree programme when they return home.


One session (2 weeks): £2,400 

Two sessions (4 weeks): £4,800 £4,395*

*Fee valid for applications for two sessions received by 10 May 2024. Offer cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts or promotions. Subject to availability at the time of application.
