Circle U.

King’s is part of the Circle U. European University Alliance, a network of nine universities who share a commitment to developing knowledge in service to society and addressing global challenges. Together with our partners in OsloAarhusBerlinBelgradeLouvainParisPisa and Vienna, we are building an inclusive, research-intensive, and interdisciplinary European University which provides a multi-cultural and multi-lingual student and staff experience.   

Circle U.’s priorities are to enable the mobility of students and staff, promote collaboration between education, research and community partners (including our 34 associated partners), increase student engagement and support the professional development of early career researchers.
