About King's Foundations

King’s has a long history of welcoming international students, and King’s Foundations is proud to play an important part in this tradition.

Entering a new study environment can be challenging, not only in terms of language but also in terms of adjusting to a new academic culture. King’s prepares and supports students in both of these areas through the King’s International Foundation Programme, providing you with the opportunity to prepare for your undergraduate degree. 

Our students are King’s students from day one and, alongside your academic studies, you will also be able to access all of King’s facilities, from our libraries, IT, gyms and restaurants to the King’s College London Students’ Union (KCLSU) and its student societies, activities and clubs. 

With our team of highly-qualified and experienced teachers, you can be sure that you are taking the best first step towards study in the UK. I look forward to welcoming you and working with you to realise your full potential at King’s.
