Open enrolment courses for partners
The portfolio of our Undergraduate and Pre-University summer courses represents offerings from across King’s College London faculties from Medical & Life Sciences to King’s Business School. The two summer schools are recognised for their creative, educational philosophy and their commitment to a dynamic, participative student experience.
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.
Some of the advantages our partners benefit from are:
Bespoke courses and packages

Some bespoke courses may be credit bearing and students can 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.
