Información General

Descripción de la beca:

Part of the international King's College London Undergraduate Summer School, the Global Leadership Programme situates future leaders in the heart of multicultural London as an ecosystem at the touch point of intersecting areas of metropolitan life: the City as the UK’s financial district, the hub of cultural and creative industries with their outreach in the West End, and the political power centre in Westminster. It will explore practice and concepts of leadership and how it continues to evolve in the light of global changes, creating a platform for enabling students individually to develop and reflect on their own styles of global leadership and to prepare for their professional futures. 

Students will have the opportunity to learn and socialize with students who come to King's each summer from more than 60 countries around the world. A truly global experience.

Santander Summer Experience at King´s Global Leadership Programme offers 30 scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students from the following countries: Spain, Portugal, UK, Poland, Germany, US, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, Perú & Puerto Rico
