International Partners - Exchange & Elective Placements

King’s offers the widest range of opportunities to study aboard in partner institutions of any of the UK medical schools, having formal twinning arrangements with 20 prestigious institutions around the world.

During Phase 4, MBBS students will be able to undertake an exchange placement during their studies at one of our partner institutions. Students can also arrange their own placements in the UK or overseas for some clinical rotations.
