Vision 2029

An international community that serves the world


King's-UNC Royster Global Fellows programme
King's College London and US partner the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) have launched a joint programme for PhD students, the Royster Global Fellows Programme.

The programme saw 11 King’s PhD students from four faculties travel to UNC’s campus for the inaugural Royster Global Fellows meeting. Over the coming months, fellows from King’s and UNC will work collaboratively to develop a workshop which will focus on ‘the making of knowledge in the 21st century’.

The Royster Society of Fellows programme has been offered at UNC for many years, and this is the first time it has been extended to engage graduate students from an international partner.

King's and UNC Chapel Hill have a number of other partnership ventures, including the newly-launched King's Partnership Pathway programme, offering UNC undergraduates the opportunity to pursue a one-year master’s degree at King’s upon graduation from UNC. Academics have also taken part in a Faculty exchange, and a video sharing their experiences can be seen at

King's-Fudan University collaboration
The Department of History at King's has forged a partnership with historians at China's Fudan University, kicking off with a joint workshop at King's in 2017.

'The City in History: Global Connections and Comparisons' workshop was organised by Dr Jennifer Altehenger from King's and Dr Qing Sun from Fudan University. Historians from both universities had the opportunity to meet for the first time and explore common themes in research.

Academics presented on topics such as the transformative effects of a growing finance sector, ancient histories in the UK and China, and health and sanitation in London and Shanghai. 

In spring 2018 King’s colleagues will visit Fudan to participate in the next workshop.


Georgian Papers Programme
In partnership with the Royal Archives and international partners the Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture and the College of William & Mary, King’s is undertaking a major project to digitise and interpret the archives of the Georgian papers held at Windsor Castle.

The five year programme will digitise some 350,000 pages of original archives, including official and private papers of Britain's Hanoverian monarchs, as well as other members of the Royal Family, politicians, courtiers and the Privy Purse.

The Programme also supports research and interpretation of this material to advance both academic and public understanding.

Inside Opera MOOC
The Department of Music and King's Online worked with the Royal Opera House and the Victoria & Albert Museum to develop the Inside Opera Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).

The free course takes learners behind the scenes at the partner institutions to see how opera works, how it has changed over the centuries and ask the question: Is opera relevant today?

Hosted by FutureLearn, students of all ages from around the world can access the course in their own time and at their own pace.
