Study abroad this summer at King's College London which offers over 50 courses spanning the arts, humanities, 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: July 2 - July 20, 2018
- Session II: July 23 - August 10, 2018
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!
Mason undergraduate students only. Minimum 3.0 GPA.
Students will select one course from Session I and/or Session II. At King's, courses are grouped under six genres - Culture, Governance, Health & Sciences, Maths & Engineering, 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.
Students will be staying at either the Stamford Street Apartments or Moonraker Point accommodation. They are both within walking distance of the Strand and Waterloo campuses where the Undergraduate Summer School classes take place. Both residences are located in the heart of the South Bank, surrounded by cultural attractions, historic buildings, restaurants and bars. The Tate Modern art gallery, Shakespeare’s Globe, Covent Garden and the London Eye are all within walking distance. Students staying in King’s accommodation will be issued an Oyster card to use throughout their stay.
Students will have a private en-suite room with shared kitchen facilities and clothes washing machines available on site. All students are provided with bed linen including duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillow case and bed sheet. The kitchen facilities will include a fridge, microwave and kettle.
