Program Dates:
Term Dates Application Deadline
Academic Year mid September - early June February 1
Fall mid September - end of December February 1
Spring mid January - early June May 1

  Approved Departments: King's College focuses on the humanities and physical and life sciences. This program is approved for the following WU departments:

American Culture Studies
Engineering (Computer Science only)
Film & Media Studies
International & Area Studies
Legal Studies
Political Science
Religious Studies

King's College also offers a Premedical Programme. The programme has been designed to go beyond the requirements for the MCAT and therefore does not offer any pre-requisite courses for medical school. Instead it focuses on key skills essential to 21st century medical education (doctor-patient communication, bioethics, the sociology of medicine and disease) which are then applied in the clinical attachments.

Coursework and Credits:
Students should take 60 KCL units per semester, which is typically 4 courses. 15 KCL units equals 4 WU units. Students must take at least 2 upper-level courses (2nd or 3rd year) in their major department.

  London, England (UK)
Explore the dynamic multiculturalism of the fast-paced capital city, London, and the exciting, diverse and creative urban areas throughout the country that bring sports, arts, science and heritage to life. Drawing on its 2,000 year-old history, you’ll experience how England is reinventing itself for success in a globalized world – through a world-renowned higher education system and a torrent of creativity in finance, art, drama, music, technology, cultural and sporting innovations.King’s College is a prestigious British institution of higher education. Its central London location provides easy access to major libraries, institutes, and societies. It is close to the Houses of Parliament too.

  Housing: Visiting students usually are offered a place in either a KCL or intercollegiate residence. The majority of KCL residences are self-catered student dormitories and apartments with kitchens that are shared with other students. The KCL and intercollegiate residence halls include cafeteria meals in the contract rate. The intercollegiate halls are only available to academic year students, not for one semester. Commercial apartments are available at higher cost if a student residence is not available or not desired.

Washington University in St. Louis staff have no control over the housing placements abroad and do not have the authority to change students’ accommodations. At King’s College London a student may swap housing placements with another student who wants to switch and KCL provides a mechanism for students to find each other. Students may also find apartments on their own in London if they are not happy with their housing assignments, however they may lose their housing deposit. WU students at King’s College London have been placed in dorms as far as 45 minutes away from campus and Central London. Although the location of these residences may not be ideal, they have the advantage of being more spacious and housing more British students. Students housed in these facilities are encouraged to befriend the other students in their dorm in order to have people with whom to commute to and from Central London at night.

Student Life: In addition to a variety of sports and clubs that students can participate in, the number of things that students can to do around the three campuses is infinite. The Strand campus is between Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral. It is next to Somerset House and The National Gallery. Nearby is the West end, famous for shops, markets, and nightlife. Royal Opera House and Royal Ballet are there too. The Waterloo campus, on the bank of the Thames River opposite the Strand campus, is next to the National Theater, the National Film Theater, and the Festival Arts Hall. The Eye of London is nearby too. Guy’s campus is along the river too, near the Tate Modern Gallery of Art.

Dive into a wide range of learning activities, such as lectures, student clubs, new hobbies, and excursions. You can choose your own direction or follow Arcadia's lead through the options they coordinate.

Arcadia Excursions: Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. Here is a sampling:
Brighton Day Trip
Tower of London
Royal Ascot
Wales Adventure Weekend
and more...


On-Site Support:  The Arcadia London Center supports all students in England from ensuring the best opportunities for excursions, events and activities, to health and safety assistance, academic guidance and good old fashioned local words of wisdom. The KCL International Office and KCL Accommodations Office provide significant support too.

  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program. WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees. Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party.
