Next week will be the start of 2019’s Summer School. We have been waiting for your arrival with great anticipation, and we’re sure you have been just as excited! We hope you are ready to make the journey from your home country, and we have been spending all year preparing for your arrival. We guarantee that Summer at King’s will be a summer that you will never forget.
Not only are you able to study at one of the best institutions in the world, you are also in a friendly environment within one of the most diverse and lively cities. The unique advantage of having a campus in the middle of London allows you to learn not only within the classroom, but also every time you set foot outside your accommodation. Meeting people from all around the world will mean that not only are you the students, but you are often the teachers – of your different cultures, practices and customs!
Here in the Summer Programmes Office, we see students get inspired from their time studying abroad year after year. Many of the students attending Summer at King’s use this opportunity to see the perks in receiving an education or living in a different country, and often repeat the experience. For many of you, this will be the first time away from home and out of the familiar. When you leave your comfort zone once, you will be able to do it repeatedly after that, and past students often credit summer at King’s as the experience which broke that initial barrier.
If you need any help before or during your time in London, please remember the Summer Programmes Office is easy to contact or visit. We can help you with anything from and fears or worries you may have, to where to buy anything you need or recommendations of where to visit.
Remember to review the checklist in the handbook, pack all the essential items and research the necessary information for your academic course. Then, take a deep breath, and get ready to fly to London!
Are you ready for the summer of your lives? Prepare to make plenty of new friends and memories at one of the best institutions in the world!
