Mission and strategy
Strategic Plan 2006-2016
King's College London is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society.
The university's Mission is articulated in more detail in the university's Strategic Plan 2006-2016 (pdf 3.3mb) and in the accompanying suite of linked strategies.
Strategic Review 2011-2016
In light of the recent changes to the higher education environment, the Principal’s Academic Strategy Group has developed a strategic review document for 2011-2016. This document is intended to follow the strategic plan above with its goal of being recognised as a leading world university by 2016. This strategy paper assesses how best to respond to subsequent progress towards that goal and to changes in the external environment, particularly the reduced HEFCE grant and higher student fees. Its main purpose is to guide the investment decisions that the university will need to make over the coming financial years to maintain its competitiveness.
