English Summer Schools

Westminster Kingsway College offers exciting English summer schools for international students, allowing you to explore all that London has to offer while expanding your experience and confidence. Our English summer schools take place at our Soho Centre, situated in the heart of London’s most vibrant area and just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the West End. The centre has a wealth of history and good transport links (a short walk from Oxford Circus, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Tottenham Court Road underground stations) so that all of central London is easily accessible. 

Summer schools provide a great opportunity to meet people from around the world. Get to know this renowned city by taking part in our scheduled cultural visits as well as exploring in your own time. 

We accept applications from those aged 18 or above. You will receive a certificate of attendance and participation once you have successfully completed the programme.

We work closely with a number of recognised accommodation providers in London and can provide advice and help with booking accommodation and airport transfers.

You will need a letter from the college confirming you have been accepted onto a course and will need to see a Border Officer when you arrive in the UK. If you are from a country for which you would usually require a visa to visit the UK you will need to apply for a Visitor Visa in advance. We are unable to issue Student Route Visas (previously known as Tier 4 General Student Visas) for our summer schools. For further information, please email international@westking.ac.uk.

Our English summer school offers English language classes for 15 hours per week (3 hours each morning, Monday – Friday), and you can study with us for up to 4 weeks at our Soho Centre in central London.

– The British Library
– The Museum of London
– Tate Modern
– Somerset House
– The British Museum

Some activities are free but others may require tickets. Tickets are usually no more than £20 (and often less). A London Travelcard may be required to participate in cultural and industry visits (costing approximately £35 per week).
