Summer programmes are an amazing opportunity to have an educational experience in the United Kingdom. It can be different from other countries, and that’s what make it unique.
Classes are a mix of ways to learn, from academic sessions to tours, guest Lectures, case studies, debates, critical thinking sessions, workshops, but it also involves independent study.
We really encourage students to participate in classes, express their ideas and views, and share it with all their peers.
It’s not always easy to adjust to a new education system, but often it makes you see things from a different perspective.
Time is flying, and while some students are starting packing to go home some are packing to join us for session two next week.
Australia, South Africa, Kenya, Mexico and USA are some of the destinations from around 90 countries that students are heading back over the next few days.
Spending a few weeks away from home could seem long but in fact once you get here it flies by and most people would probably like to stay longer. Hopefully some will feel inspired to return and spend a longer period at King’s.
During the last three weeks students had lectures taught by King’s academics, met industry professionals, had hands-on experience, worked in groups, went on excursions and of course explored London in their free time.
To those who are going back home, have a good journey back and keep exploring, and to those who are arriving in London this weekend, have a safe journey, we are looking forward to meeting you all.
We flew from London to Hong Kong to bring a unique teaching experience to students at our hosting school, Singapore International School (Hong Kong). Here are some highlights of an inspiring week.
Students were introduced to the British way of teaching and they explored a range of subject areas, such as Biomedical Sciences, Business Management, Chemistry, Law, Politics and Engineering.
It was a great opportunity for them to have an international experience in their own country, and some of the students got excited with the idea of studying abroad in the future.
Professors returned fully inspired by the bright and motivated students that they met and came back with good memories.
Students attended special sessions on the British university application process delivered by our deputy director, Ian Fielding.

Studying abroad is bound to be a life experience. It takes you out of your comfort zone, it challenges you and it teaches you to be more open. It also gives you the incredible opportunity get other points of view and explore another culture.
Every year, we welcome students from all corners of the world in London, but likewise many of our students also get the opportunity to go abroad.
Recently, 50 King’s students travelled to Berlin and explored German culture and history. It was an interactive, skills and knowledge-building programme, where they were intellectually stimulated and personally empowered. They were encouraged to think about their personal agency and the impact in their communities.
Here are some highlights of a memorable week.
