On Thursday 28 November, Principal Ed Byrne and KCLSU President Shaswat Jain signed an agreement outlining how the union and the university will work together this academic year, ensuring every King's student has the best possible experience.

The King’s College London and King’s College London Students’ Union Relationship Agreement clarifies the role of each organisation in providing for students.

Signed in front of students and staff at Bush House, the agreement states how King's and KCLSU will work together, setting out four shared key priorities for the 2019-20 academic year.

These are:

  • Increase mental health support
  • Improve support and opportunities from King's Careers & Employability Service
  • Campaign to decolonise the curriculum and liberate education at King's
  • Student Voice and Representation
