Pre-University Winter School


Building on the success of our Winter School in 2021, we are delighted to announce that Winter School will be returning in February 2022. 
Designed primarily for students aged 15-17, who will be soon making decisions around university, this one-week online programme is an intensive introduction to undergraduate level study. The course allows students to explore different subjects within a wider academic discipline and make informed choices about their options beyond compulsory education. 
The programme offers five streams, spanning teaching from most of King’s faculties and schools. Choose one of the following courses for the duration of the programme:
  • Business & Economics
  • Health & Science
  • Law, Politics & Social Science
  • Media, Art & Culture (NEW for 2022)
  • Psychology & Neuroscience (NEW for 2022)
The Winter School enables students to sample various subjects within their chosen discipline, gain insight into how it’s taught at undergraduate level, start to develop skills and competencies needed for success at university, and build confidence ahead of further study.
Students who successfully complete the programme will receive a Participant Record of Achievement.

What our students say

"I studied Health and Science at the Pre-University Winter School. I would strongly recommend the course to other students. It offers an invaluable window into university-style teaching, led by prominent academics, and increases confidence through open discussion. The wide spectrum of course content covered was fascinating - from medical imaging, to 3D printing in healthcare, to the advent of Covid-19.

The lectures were intuitive, interactive, and taught in an accessible manner. It was also great to interact with like-minded peers, and to engage in discussion on academic topics with them. Overall, I made good friends, and it was a most enjoyable experience."
