The teaching of Portuguese in British universities was pioneered by King's in the 1860s and, since the establishment of the Camoes chair in 1919, the College has become a leading centre for Portuguese studies. The Camões Centre relates to a long and prestigious historical and contemporary tradition of the study of Portugal and Portuguese at King's. The Centre is not only focused in Portugal, but promotes interdisciplinary activities involving Portuguese, Brazilian and African Lusophone cultures and promoting the Portuguese language.

The Camões Centre was created in 2010 by an agreement celebrated by Instituto Camões (Ministry of Foreign Affairs - Portugal) and King's College London. The Camões Centre provides the teaching staff and the students of KCL, and other interested parties, the means to deepen the knowledge in the fields of language, culture, history, politics and Portuguese society and to participate in academic and cultural activities within these fields.

 The Brazil Institute and the Camões Centre started a collaboration in 2021, putting together their efforts for promoting Portuguese-related activities across a range of academic disciplines at the university level in the UK, in a post-colonial approach and contributing to KLC broader internationalization strategy.
