  London, England (UK)
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 a KCL residence. The majority of KCL residences are self-catered student dormitories and apartments with kitchens that are shared with other students. The KCL residence halls include cafeteria meals in the contract rate.

Student Life: A lively and varied optional social programme is offered to complement the courses. Many events are held at the King’s Waterfront venue with its spectacular views over the River Thames; others are offered off-campus. Some events are free; others may require purchase of tickets, but whatever we offer we always strive to offer value for money for our students. Previous examples of social events include a boat party down the River Thames, quiz evenings at the Waterfront, historical walking tours around London and discount theatre evenings.

On-Site Support: WU contracts with ACCENT International for support of its London programs. The KCL International Office and KCL Accommodations Office provide significant support too.
  Estimated Program Price: Students pay all summer program related fees to the program sponsor or host university directly.  Please Contact the program sponsor or host for tuition, billing and payment details.
