King's College London Summer School
Study abroad this summer at King's College in London, which offers over 50 courses spanning the arts, humanities, literature, law, management, politics, and social sciences. Students can choose to do Session I, Session II or both sessions, earning 3 credits per session.
- Session I: June 26-July 14, 2017
- Session II: July 17- August 4, 2017
During your stay in London, make sure you take a ride on the London Eye, a giant observation wheel and prominent London landmark. This slow-moving, giant ferris wheel is situated on the banks of the River Thames giving you enough time to take in the beautiful views of the city. You will be able to see many famous places from the glass capsules, including Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, and the Houses of Parliament. Make sure to buy your London Eye tickets in advance, and plan to go at night when the lines are less crowded and the views are even more spectacular!
This program is open to all Mason undergraduate students.
At King's, courses are grouped under six genres - Culture, Governance, Health & Sciences, Law, Business, and Ancient Languages.
Choosing Courses Abroad
This program does not have pre-approved classes. It is your responsibility to select courses and get them approved for transfer credit. To facilitate this process, you will complete the Petition for Transfer of Credit (PTC) Form. You will have access to the PTC form when you open an application.
You are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to look at this institution’s courses ahead of time to see how they will match up to your Mason degree requirements. Talk to your academic advisor about what courses you will need to receive credit for during your time abroad to stay on-track for your degree. When looking at courses keep in mind that course schedules can change. We recommend having twice as many courses approved as necessary.
