Want to find out what it’s really like studying at Kings?

You can follow the daily lives of several King’s undergraduate students on Twitter and Facebook this week.

Every day, two students will be regularly tweeting and providing status updates – including everything from what they had for breakfast to photos of their notes from a lecture they’ve just attended.

Our social-media-savvy students are studying on the following programmes:

  • Neuroscience
  • Nursing
  • History
  • Law
  • Music and German
  • Spanish and English Literature
  • Philosophy.

 To connect with them, search for #kclshadow on Twitter or visit  

Widening Participation

The Virtual Shadowing Week has been launched by the Widening Participation team as part of the K + programme. 

The programme works with Year 12 students from the Greater London area, in particular students from state schools who might not usually consider King’s.

This year we have 510 students taking part and have received over 1,000 applications for a place on the programme. K + provides students with a structured programme of events and activities. The programme supports students in applying to university and equips them with the skills they need to reach their potential as undergraduates.
