What can I study?
Our Undergraduate Summer School offers a wide range of modules spanning subject areas such as health and science, law, governance, business management, and culture.
Each module lasts two weeks and modules are offered in two different sessions. Students are welcome to attend both sessions and thereby study two modules of your choice.
There are two sessions on the following dates:
- Session One: Monday 3 July 2023 - Friday 14 July 2023
- Session Two: Monday 17 July 2023 - Friday 28 July 2023
Undergraduate Summer School Modules - Session One
Undergraduate Summer School Modules - Session Two
Undergraduate Summer School Modules - Session Two continued
Taught on-campus between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday
Attendance is vital to success on the module, and you are required attend at least 80% of your lessons in order to pass the module.
Assessment and grading
All students will receive a final mark on their Record of Agreed Results (transcript). The UK grading system may be very different from what you are used to. Please note in the UK anything above 70 is considered excellent; it is not usual to receive much above 80 even if this is what you are used to at your home university.
King's College London's Undergraduate Marking Criteria is categorised by the following breakdown of marks:
- 90-100 (First) Grade A++
- 80-89 (First) Grade A+
- 70-79 (First) Grade A
- 60-69 (Upper 2nd) Grade B
- 50-59 (Lower 2nd) Grade C
- 40-49 (Third) Grade D
- 33-39 (Fail) Grade F
- 0-32 (Fail) Grade FF
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 a 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 students on this programme may be eligible to stay in King's student halls of residence. Age restrictions apply.
King’s Residences are now open for booking. For more information and to book, please visit: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/accommodation/summer-schools
