Frequently Asked Questions
Can I study Session One and Session Two?
Yes you are able to study both sessions if you wish. If not, you need to make the decision between studying in Session One or Session Two.
How many modules am I able to study?
You are able to study one module per session. So if you study in both Session One and Session Two you will overall study two modules during your time with us at the Undergraduate Summer School.
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 come and 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?
Dependant on the module you study you may be studying at our Strand, Waterloo or Guy's Campus.
