Welcome to Bucksmore English Language Summer Schools

King's College London

London

King’s College London is the latest addition to the portfolio of centres run by Bucksmore during the summer. King’s College is a world-famous prestigious university in the heart of London.  It is consistently ranked among the top Universities in both the UK and the world.

History

Founded in 1829 by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington, King’s College London is one of the most famous universities in the world. The university has grown through merging with other institutions including Chelsea College, Institute of Psychiatry and Queen Elizabeth College. The University of London was established in 1836 with King’s and UCL as its two founding colleges making it the fourth oldest university in England.

In 2004, the university had various celebrations to commemorate its 175th anniversary. Research-led and based in the heart of London, today King’s is one of the world’s leading Universities for education and research. The university has also helped many world-changing advances such as the discovery of the structure of DNA, research development of radio, television and mobile phones along with also being the largest centre for the education of healthcare professionals in Europe.

Location

King’s College is located in the United Kingdom’s great capital, London. Positioned right in the city centre in state-of-the-art premises of the Strand campus, King’s College provides students with a perfect central location to explore the exciting hustle and bustle of this magnificent city.

Classrooms and meals take place on the Strand campus, less than a mile from famous landmarks such as Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

The accommodation is provided at Moonraker Point, just over a mile away from the main campus, close to Southwark underground station.

Accommodation

Both Bucksmore London and the London Advanced Studies Program’s accommodation is based at the newly refurbished Moonraker Point located only 20 minutes away from campus. Moonraker Point is part of the university’s student accommodation, and provides Bucksmore students with newly-refurbished and high quality single en-suite bedrooms.

As the accommodation is just over a mile away from the main campus, students will travel between the two either by tube, bus or walking (weather dependent). All students are given a free travel-card for each week of their stay, and students will never travel between the accommodation and campus without supervision from a Bucksmore member of staff.

Bucksmore also offers a complimentary airport transfer service to students arriving at Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports.

Safety

In addition to the Bucksmore’s residential centre management team and counsellors that provide pastoral care and support to students, there are also friendly and welcoming King’s College staff available 24 hours a day.

 

N.B. Bucksmore Education only uses the facilities provided by the Strand campus of King’s College London and accommodation at Moonraker Point. The course is in no way affiliated with King’s College London.
