Summer Courses

Summer School at British Universities

The London School of English is working in partnership with some world class universities to offer our course participants the opportunity to combine an English language course with a summer university course.

The London School of English course participants do not have to meet the standard IELTS requirement for these programmes. We will assess your level of English during your course to make sure you have the correct level.

There are a wide range of subjects available at the university summer schools, which you can take for academic credit* or for professional and personal development.

The King’s College London Undergraduate Summer School is a high quality and intensive academic programme open to students from around the world. King's College offer university-level summer courses which use a fresh approach to the study of traditional academic subjects.

Using London as a classroom, students discover history and culture through museums, galleries and tours in different parts of London.

The Undergraduate Summer School can be used to develop existing knowledge of a subject or to study something completely new. Most courses do not require previous knowledge of the subject, which provides the opportunity to study courses for personal interest or to develop academic knowledge of a new subject.

As well as a structured academic programme, the Undergraduate Summer School has a lively social programme that allows students the option of participating in trips and activities to popular UK destinations and London exhibitions and events. In the past this has included day trip to Windsor and Oxford, boat trips down the River Thames and seeing popular West End shows.

These events are very varied and provide the opportunity for each participant to make the most of what London has to offer.
