Connecting the global to the local
King’s is proud to be a global institution that takes seriously its role in – and responsibility to – the city and the communities around us.
Our international reach brings benefits to London while our local connections create new knowledge with transnational impact, or shape new approaches to internationalisation. For example, the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care’s partnership with Nanjing Health School sees King’s provide consultancy, education and training to help build the healthcare workforce in China. The partnership is informed by the faculty’s distinctive approach to education and its position in the heart of London’s communities.
Our work with diaspora communities in London is also delivering healthcare benefits in countries such as our work with King’s Somaliland Partnership.
Connecting the local to the global, we help London address its challenges and opportunities while incorporating its many possibilities in education, research and service – creating the problem-solvers that will help to shape the future not just of London, but of the country and wider world.
