University Pathways in the USA

Kings On Campus Plus program in the USA gives students a guaranteed, fast and flexible path to a range of leading universities.

With these carefully designed programs, our students live and study with American students during their freshman year, but get the benefit of extra help and support from Kings staff on campus. This way, they can better acclimatize to life at a US university, achieve better results, and avoid the need for an extra pre-sessional year before beginning their degree.

On Campus Plus makes use of the established transfer system within US higher education, giving students the guaranteed option either to stay at their host university to complete their degree or to transfer to a partner university, or the further option of transferring to a personal ‘dream’ university — with our help, support and guidance along the way.

Some of the final university destinations of Kings students to date include several ranked amongst the top 50 national US universities, such as Cornell University, UC Berkeley, UCLA and New York University.
