The objective of the Menzies Australia Institute is to deepen understanding of Australia in the United Kingdom through research, teaching and engagement.
We work with researchers from across King’s and our strategic partners to support individual and collaborative projects that deepen understanding of Australia.

We convene undergraduate modules on Australian history, literature and film, provide Australian perspectives in a range of other undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes at King’s, and supervise Australia-focused postgraduate research projects in a welcoming, collaborative and creative research environment.
