I’m very pleased to be writing this introduction to KE’s Summer Programmes.
Before coming to KE, I spent a number of years setting up and managing short, summer programmes for international students (I’d also been principal of a language school preparing students for university entry). For some time, I’d been looking for a ‘different kind of summer programme’: programmes which are more challenging, more exciting, more appropriate for students with high aspirations than those offered by dozens of other schools and companies – which are often fun, but perhaps not always very useful.
And then I was fortunate enough to be invited to act as Principal and Academic Manager at KE. There was certainly a big difference! What is offered here really is a very different kind of summer programme. The programmes we provide are full of varied activity, but they’re also very practical: they’re designed to make a significant difference to your chances of success. We just ask for… ideas, energy, enthusiasm – and a desire to spend some time with others who also enjoy thinking and debate.
With a really wide choice of courses, delivered in three English-speaking countries, and with a really wide choice of great places to visit, KE is a provider of truly unique summer programmes.
To find out more, please look at the various pages elsewhere on this website; contact us if you have any questions. And join us in your next summer break!
