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.

London School of English course participants are exempted from the standard IELTS requirement for these programmes. We will assess your level of English during your course to ensure you have the correct level.

There are a wide range of subjects available at the university summer schools, which can be taken 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 are exposed to a wealth of history and culture through museums, galleries and tours throughout London.

The Undergraduate Summer School can be used to build on knowledge of an existing subject or to study something completely new. Most courses do not require previous knowledge of the subject which provides the opportunity to study courses out of 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 element that allows students the option of undertaking 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 taking in popular West End shows.

These events aim to cater to a variety of student tastes and provides the opportunity for each student to make the most what London has to offer.
