King's Edge Festivals

King's Edge Festivals are series of exclusive events, including workshops, insight sessions, panel discussions or networking opportunities. They showcase the best of King’s extracurricular unique offer, designed to encourage students to experience student life beyond their degrees.

King's Edge Festivals help students stand out as future innovators, leaders and service minded. By bringing a wide range of events and opportunities together, King's Edge Festivals enhance students' exploration of university's communities to inspire them in their future endeavours. 



We have a vast range of events all year round, ranging from (but not limited to!) volunteering opportunities in our community garden to career enhancing workshops to inspiring talks with our incredible alumni.

Our talks and workshops will help you develop essential skills such as - productive job hunting, networking, CV and Cover Letter writing, interview preparation and assessment techniques. We host various workshops specific to different stages that you could be in your journey.

From one-off events to regular volunteering opportunities, there’s something for everyone. Whether you are passionate about the environment, education or mental health, King’s Volunteering can connect you with an organisation and a cause that’s right for you.

King’s Careers & Employability team offers career appointments throughout the academic year for students needing support with their journey.

Regardless of the stage of their journey (discover, focus, action), our Careers Consultants will be on hand to support you, answer questions and signpost students to helpful resources and find relevant opportunities.

A majority of appointments are booked through King’s CareerConnect. One-to-one appointments are very popular and get booked quickly, so we encourage students to sign up soon, so they do not miss a slot.
