King's College London (informally King's or KCL) is a public research university located in London, United Kingdom.

 

King's has an outstanding reputation for world-class teaching and cutting-edge research. It is now the largest healthcare learning centre in Europe, incorporating three teaching hospitals and providing a home to more than 27,000 students (including nearly 10,500 postgraduates) from 150 countries .

King's has a particularly distinguished reputation in the humanities, law, the sciences (including a wide range of health areas such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing and dentistry) and social sciences including international affairs. It has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar.

The university’s main site is on the Strand, in the heart of London, on the north bank of the River Thames, with another four campuses located at Guy’s Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital, and in Waterloo and Denmark Hill. The 4 Thames-side campuses offer a vibrant and cosmopolitan environment in which to study, with superb access to the academic, cultural and social riches of London.

KCL’s central London location also means students can benefit from the university’s connections with a broad range of partners across business and industry, government and charities, arts, sports and culture.

With over 150 partner institutions, it  offers study abroad programmes with a wide range of HE institutions globally, from Humboldt University in Berlin and the Paris-Sorbonne in France, to the Universities of California, Hong Kong, São Paulo and many more.  King's graduates enjoy one of the best graduate employment rates in the UK and, typically, also earn higher graduate starting salaries.
