The Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences has extensive international links in both teaching and research, contributing to King's status as a world-class university.
Almost a third of the School's students come from overseas and our staff are also drawn from around the world.
This diversity contributes to our partnerships with international institutions, facilitating knowledge transfer and encouraging progressive research, with active collaborations and exchanges in all the Faculty's departments.

The King's College London Study Abroad Programme allows students who are currently studying for their degree at an overseas institution to spend either a semester or a full year at King's. It is is a fully integrated programme so students will attend the same classes and live in the same accomodation as any other King's student. With campuses right in the heart of London and with over 800 courses to choose from, including options in all levels of Mathematics, Informatics, Physics and Chemistry, students have the opportunity to gain new insights into their field of study by immersing themselves in an international community and a new academic context.
King's students at both undergraduate and postgraduate research level have the opportunity to study abroad with our international partners, on year abroad programmes or on an exchange for a semester or a year.
Undergraduate programmes with a year abroad include Physics and Philosophy with a year abroad and Computer Science with Management and a year abroad. For more information see the undergraduate prospectus.
