Student support has attracted more donations than any other area of the University’s work during the World questions | King’s answers campaign. Your gifts help King’s to support the brightest and best students in fulfilling their potential, whatever their circumstances and regardless of their background or financial need. In addition, your immense generosity is enabling us to offer scholarships and bursaries to more students than ever before.
A world-class education in the world’s greatest city
Living and studying in the heart of London is an education in itself. King’s students have some of the world’s best museums, galleries and theatres on their doorstep. They also benefit from wonderful opportunities to connect with and learn from leading experts in the fields of culture, politics, business, healthcare and finance.
However, it is no secret that London is also one of the world’s most expensive cities to live in and, for many talented students, this can be a deterrent to studying at King’s. Your support is a passport to a world-class education that might otherwise be out of reach and means that students are free to immerse themselves in their learning and achieve the best possible degree – leading to the greatest career opportunities.
It is not just individual students who benefit from scholarships; it is the University and wider society too. Your support helps King’s attract students from diverse backgrounds, enriching university life and encouraging people from all walks of life to aspire to positions of leadership and influence in the future. In this way, you help the University achieve its mission of serving society in the UK and abroad.
Empowerment through education and opportunity
King’s offers a vibrant programme of events and societies and encourages students to participate in internships, electives and study abroad placements. These opportunities can be life-changing, expanding young people’s personal and academic horizons, preparing them for the global stage, and boosting their employability. But worries about travel and accommodation costs and turning down paid work can put them out of reach for some. Your generosity enabled students to benefit from these opportunities, whatever their financial means.
On behalf of all our students, thank you for the many generous ways in which you support King’s. Your enduring gifts support the education of this generation and those to come, building on the University’s long and rich tradition of philanthropy. Thanks to you, King’s is able to attract the finest students and give them a wonderfully rounded education and global outlook. Thanks to you, they may go on to change the world.
