King's recognised as one of the most international universities in the world

King’s placed 11th in the Times Higher Education’s World’s Most International Universities ranking

Students at King's College London's Guy's Campus

King’s has been named 11th most international university in the world and fourth in the UK in the Times Higher Education’s (THE) World’s Most International Universities 2020 ranking – a rise of four places from last year.

The data for this ranking is drawn from the ‘international outlook’ pillar of the THE World University Rankings 2020. It takes into account the proportion of international students and international staff at each university, as well as the percentage of publications with at least one international co-author.

The World’s Most International Universities ranking also considers an institution’s global reputation. This measure is based on the number of votes that a university achieved from outside their home country in THE’s annual invitation-only Academic Reputation Survey, which asks leading scholars to name the world’s best universities for teaching and research in their field.

We are very proud that King’s has been recognised for our international outlook in this ranking. Our position represents the commitment we have made to providing diverse and enriching educational experiences and developing culturally competent students, staff and alumni who can contribute to building a better, fairer world around them.– Professor 'Funmi Olonisakin, Vice President & Vice-Principal International
A truly international university works in partnership with a range of institutions across the globe, in order to address complex global challenges and benefit local communities. King’s has partners in all continents, and we look forward to building on these relationships, and developing new ones, that are key to delivering King’s Vision 2029. – Dr Tania Lima, Director of Global Engagement
