King’s College London Summer Programmes team have announced new scholarships for King’s popular, academically rich and rigorous Undergraduate Summer School. Eight successful candidates from around the globe will be given a tuition fee scholarship to study a course of their choice in London this summer.
Dr Sarah Williamson, Director of Summer Programmes at King’s, said: “At King’s great minds are studying together to serve society globally. I am delighted to offer for the first time in 2017 Summer@King’s scholarships to academically gifted students with great communication skills from all around the world. At the core of our ethos is our summer Education Programme, through which we are expanding the King’s community, increasing the diversity of our university in the summer months and inviting inquisitive and able students to join us. We are much looking forward to receiving applications.”
In times of seemingly drastic change, applicants interested in applying are asked to argue why London still “matters to the world in 2017” in a 1,000 word essay. Apart from original, well-structured thinking and classic academic writing skills, students will also produce a three minute video explaining the key points in their essay – a great opportunity to show how to communicate complex arguments effectively in little time.
The Summer@King’s scholarship covers the £1500 tuition fee. Students have until 1 April 2017 to submit an application and need to apply for the Summer School in the usual way meeting the standard academic criteria for the programme. Successful applicants will be contacted by 15 April 2017.
