International Students, Internationalisation and Digital Education


King’s College London defines cultural competency as the ability to see the world through the lens of others – in all their diversity. This includes people from different nations and regions, socio-economic backgrounds, races, genders, ages, religions and abilities.

Students and staff at King’s develop their cultural competency at home, abroad and online. Our own diversity, curriculum, interdisciplinarity, London location, dedication in service to society and global reach all combine to make this possible.

King’s College London is committed to developing successful students, staff and alumni who can contribute to building a better, fairer world around them. The best minds with a clear sense of mission and world changing ideas come to King’s and are helped to develop and implement these ideas.

International students are a key part of the King’s student body. Internationalism flows through every area of King’s from the formal links created through partner universities and study abroad programmes to the informal friendships that grow out of our diverse student, staff and alumni populations. King's has over 26,000 students, of which over 8,000 are international students from 150 different countries, and thus providing support for their digital education needs will help strengthen the institution.

Learning Outcomes:

This session will provide pointers for reflection, and there will be opportunities for staff to discuss and provide peer support. Some of the areas covered will include:

  • What pointers are there on digital tools that can best support international students?
  • How can we use digital education to support the university's internationalisation agenda?
  • What other sources of support are available to lecturers?
