Our Students

 

We are an international community that serves the world, committed to developing successful students and alumni who can contribute to building a better, fairer world around them.

KIng's Internationalisation Strategy 2029

King's is committed to ensuring a positive environment across all aspects of our community, and we recognise this commitment to diversity through the variety of activity we offer to our employer partners who embrace diversity, inclusion and equity in their recruitment.

We know that this and social mobility are often at the top of many organisations' agendas, and have forged strong partnerships with a range of employers to this effect, running innovative programmes and events which enable you to help meet these targets and remove barriers that some of our students face.

Our team is committed to continuous and intelligent thinking on these areas, working with recruiters to enhance your organisation's ability to work with talented students from a range of backgrounds. Our Employer Relations & Development team can work with you to plan your strategy at King's, and we have a dedicated programme for under-represented groups, Careers+, which focusses support on engaging with and improving the graduate prospects for this cohort.

What do our international students have to offer?
  • Global outlook - our students travel from around the world with existing work and study experience, however they also benefit from multiple opportunities to further this during their time at King's.
  • Language skills - many of our students are bilingual or multilingual, with the ability to utilise these skills in their chosen workplaces.
  • Cultural awareness - located at the heart of one of the world's most multicultural cities, King's students engage and interact with fellow international students, staff and others in the classroom and around the city.
  • Independence - choosing to study overseas demonstrates a level of confidence and independence which can be translated into the workplace.
  • Networks - our students possess wide-reaching networks around the world and as King's alumni can bring these connections to your organisation.
Transferable skills - our programmes develop critical skills and values such as commercial awareness, research and analysis, communication, resilience, teamwork and presentation skills.
