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 https://youtu.be/pT50G_-v5Xs
