King’s offers an outstanding environment for impact activity, extensive experience of external engagement and clear internal support mechanisms.
In the latest REF2021, 95 per cent of our research impact was judged 'world leading' (4*) and 'internationally excellent' (3*).
Researchers in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities create impact through enhancing public access, understanding and engagement; shaping publishing, programming, creative and critical practice in areas including theatre, music, film and literature; influencing policy, political and educational practice and promoting diverse forms of social engagement.
Partners range from local organisations through to national and international organisations in different sectors, including theatre and TV companies, charities, orchestras, the National Archives, and the British Library.
Looking ahead, impact in Arts and Humanities at King’s will be supported in various ways, including through our interdisciplinary centres and our new Impact Accelerator Account which demonstrates our strategic priorities in social justice both locally and internationally, nurturing projects with communities under-represented in academic partnerships.
