You are entitled to take the AKC course at the same time as you read for your degree. The AKC is unique to King's College London and is the only course open to students from every department.
The General AKC
This AKC course is open to all students from the Schools of Arts & Humanities*, Biomedical & Health Science, Dental Institute, Institute of Psychiatry, Law, Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery, Natural & Mathematical Sciences and Social Science & Public Policy as well as members of staff.
The course is usually taken in three years, and covers aspects of ethics, philosophical theology, Biblical studies and Christian doctrine.
* There is a separate course run for students in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies. See below.
The AKC for Theology & Religious Studies students
Students in the Theology & Religious Studies Department have a separate AKC programme. The course is normally taken in three years.
As the General AKC syllabus touches upon subjects which you will already be covering in your degree programmes, you are instead offered the opportunity to receive world class teaching from experts in other fields from across the rest of the College. You will be encouraged to consider a wide range of issues and themes and how they relate to the topics dealt with in your degree course.
