King's College London
King's College London was founded by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington in 1829. When the University of London was established in 1836, King's became one of its two founding colleges. While remaining part of the University of London, King's has enjoyed financial and academic autonomy since 1994. Since 2008, King's has awarded its own degrees.
The College has a distinguished reputation in humanities, law, the sciences, including health areas such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing and dentistry and social sciences, including international affairs. It remains fully committed to being a multicultural, international university and the European students are a very important part of the college community. The dedicated Careers & Employability Team offers an outstanding range of professional development support. Many students have the option to gain academic credit through the completion of an internship as part of the Accredited Internships Programme embedded within the degree.
King’s College provides an enormous variety of opportunities where students can get involved, make new friends, have fun and be part of the student community. These include sports clubs, societies, volunteering opportunities, student media and campaigning groups.
Voted the world’s best student city by QS Best Student Cities 2019, London is an integral part of the King’s experience with four of its five campuses beside the River Thames. With central London as campus, students will have access to world-class galleries, the best libraries, academic resources, museums, theatres, restaurants and nightlife.
