Frequently Asked Questions

General Information

Can I study Session One and Session Two?
Yes. Please state clearly on your application which modules you would like to study in which session.

How many modules am I able to study?
You are able to study one module per session. 

Will I get credit for studying at the summer school?
Classes can often be taken for credit towards degrees at other institutions, and are examined to university standards. To receive credit for King's summer classes, contact your home institution to ask them to award external credit. Classes are typically equivalent to an undergraduate degree module and usually awarded 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS.

Do I need a visa to study at the summer school?
Depending on where you are from you may need a visa to study with us. You can find this out by visiting this website. If you do require a visa you will need to apply for a Short Term Study Visa.

Will I receive a visa support letter?
All students will be sent a visa support letter upon payment of fees. This letter will be used to apply for a visa (if one is needed) and to also show immigration upon entering the UK.

Where are classes held?
Depending on the module you study you may be studying at our Strand, Waterloo or Guy's Campus.
