London as a Living Classroom
We work with partners in London to develop distinctive learning opportunities that help our students develop the skills and networks that will support them in their future careers.
Our ambition is to make the world a better place by providing our students with a transformative education, enabling them to turn their curiosity and aspirations into a lasting basis for success, social impact and continuous learning.
Our partnerships with our local boroughs and across the capital are a distinctive feature of a King’s education. Across all our faculties, formal and informal learning programmes integrate London into our students’ experiences and provide opportunities to test their learning in real world environments. These connections and collaborations help our students take away the best possible life opportunities and to develop lifelong connections and networks that will support them throughout their careers.
More information about the education strategy as part of Vision 2029 can be found on the Education Strategy webpages.
