King's Experience Awards

King's Experience London Award

King's Experience London Award encourages interaction with people from radically different backgrounds as well as community engagement, so that you make your mark and evidence this by creating an assessment piece.

Successful completion will be rewarded in the annual King’s Experience Awards Ceremony and will be recorded on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), which you can showcase to employers.

What is “experiential learning”?

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. As part of your King’s Experience, we want to encourage you to discover new activities that fall outside of your degree.

As part of the London Award, you are required to complete a minimum of 25 hours of experiential learning. This might sound like a lot, but you can make this up from several activities, and it doesn’t have to be from the same place.

You may be exploring the city's many cultural outlets, organising events at university or in your borough, taking part in King’s student societies or volunteering - these all count as experiential learning!

What do I need to do to get the London Award?

There are three main things that you will need to do:

  1. Complete 25 hours of experiential learning (actual engagement with London communities)
  2. Reflect on the experience
  3. Create an assessment piece to demonstrate your reflective journey

What will I get out of it?

Successful participation on this Award will enable you: 

  • To make a difference to the world around you by being an active London citizen
  • To recognise moral, ethical and social issues affecting London communities
  • To become more civic and community-minded
  • To become more conscious of the value of equality and diversity in London
