King’s works in partnership with a number of London-based universities and while each relationship is unique, common areas of collaboration include research, staff and student exchange and joint academic programmes. In this way we ensure that by working together we offer more to our students, academics and to London.
Examples of how we are working with other London universities include our partnership in the Wellcome Trust funded Bloomsbury Centre for Global Health (with London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, University College London, Queen Mary's and St George's University of London), and with the LSHTM/KCL joint Centre for Global Mental Health.
We wish to expand collaboration with other UK-based Global Health Institutes, in research, and to improve and extend the impact of capacity-building programs to benefit partners in the Global South.
