Internationalisation is embedded into everything we do at King’s. For students that means an international curriculum with opportunities to study or gain work experience abroad, an international environment on campus and a School of Global Affairs bringing together the best teaching and latest insights into emerging economies. It also means producing internationally-renowned research by collaborating with our global partner universities and providing world-class healthcare around the world.

Our Study Abroad Office manages placements for King’s students who want to spend time abroad as part of their degree and overseas students who want to come to King’s during their study. Each year more and more students are taking advantage of the opportunity to study abroad from a wide range of faculties.
Sudents from across the university also have an opportunity to spend time abroad for shorter periods, or to do field work as part of courses like Medicine and Geography.
