Applications and Accommodation
To apply for the Pembroke-King’s Programme you will need to be at least 18 years old by the time the programme starts and be enrolled in a course of study in higher education.
Applications received after the programme is full may be placed on a waiting list. If this is the case, the International Programmes Department will contact you.
Undergraduate students are advised to check with their institution for advice about gaining course credit for participation in the Pembroke-King’s Programme. The following documents should accompany your application:
- a copy of your most recent undergraduate academic transcript, showing both the term and cumulative GPA.
- a reference from a lecturer who has regularly taught you at university level in an academic environment as part of your undergraduate course of studies. Teaching Assistants can be referees as far as they fulfil the criteria listed above.
If you are a graduate student, you are welcome to apply for the Pembroke-King’s Programme, but are advised to check with your institution for advice about gaining course credit for participation in the Pembroke-King’s Programme. The following documents should accompany your application:
- a copy of your undergraduate academic transcript, as issued at graduation, showing your final GPA
- a reference from your current employer or graduate studies professor, as appropriate
The International Programmes Department will endeavour to secure your preferred accommodation option upon receipt of the appropriate fee. Rooms are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is not possible to guarantee that a room in a particular accommodation band will be available. The International Programmes Department reserves the right to amend a student’s selected accommodation option should circumstances beyond our control mean that accommodation in the selected location or selected accommodation band becomes unavailable.
Receiving an Offer
The International Programmes department will communicate the outcome of an application within 15 working days of its completed submission. Please note, on receiving an offer to participate in the programme, you have 4 weeks from the date of the offer to initially secure your place by selecting and paying the appropriate fee for your accommodation. If you do not secure your accommodation within 4 weeks your offer of a place expires. PLEASE NOTE: Paying your accommodation fee initially secures a place on the programme, however, to be fully confirmed as a participant you must have paid both your accommodation and tuition fees.
If you are applying through the University of California EAP or Northeastern University please note that:
Your accommodation fee should be paid directly to Pembroke College – this is a non-refundable fee, due for payment within 4 weeks of being offered a place on the programme. If you do not secure your accommodation within 4 weeks your offer of a place will expire. Payment of the accommodation fee enables you to register for courses.
If, for whatever reason, you are obliged to cancel your place on the Pembroke-King’s Programme, you should be aware of the following stipulations:
- Application Fee: This fee is non-refundable.
- Accommodation Fees: Cancellations before 31 March 2018 shall be granted a full refund, before 14 April 2018 a 50% refund, and before 28 April 2018 a 25% refund. Thereafter, no part of the accommodation fee will be refunded.
- Tuition Fee: This fee is non-refundable.
- Supervision Supplement: This supplement is non-refundable.
Courses and Teaching
The International Programmes Department reserves the right to alter or cancel any course should illness or unavoidable changes in circumstance prevent a course instructor from teaching. The Department will make all efforts, should such an event arise, to provide a suitable substitute instructor.
The International Programmes Department reserves the right to cancel any of the courses on offer should they be undersubscribed. In the unlikely event of this situation arising, participants will be advised on the best alternative subject for their course requirements.
It is important to note that due to applications being on a rolling basis course availability becomes more limited for later applicants.
