King’s College, London, one of the premier colleges of the world, held the second season of its Summer School in London for students who had received scholarships at the King’s regional summer schools. Held from July 28 to August 15, the three week programme was attended by 1200 students from 72 nationalities.

Another scholarship holder, Chirutha, who did a course in Art of Leadership and International Marketing, said, “The courses gave me a deeper insight into exploring myself more as an individual and provided me with different aspects of conceptualization.”
