Widening Participation

The Department of Comparative Literature is distinct in the international and cosmopolitan mix of its students, and is dedicated to further widening participation in this fascinating discipline.

To that end, it runs a session each year for students participating in the K+ programme. This session is designed to offer a taste of the kind of work undergraduates do while studying Comparative Literature. It is also a fantastic place for interested students to ask questions about the field, which is often new to them. 

K+ is a programme of events which take place over two years, and which are designed to help support applicants from the Greater London area. Specifically, it works with applicants who are part of the first generation in their family to go to university.

If participants successfully complete the programme they can be given a ‘variable offer’, which can be up to two A-Level grades lower than the standard offer. Participants will also know more about King’s as a place to study, and will have a strong sense of what Comparative Literature is all about, and what kind of work goes on in neighbouring departments.
