About us

Midwifery student, London bus and Big Ben, nurse and elderly patient

King’s students have the power to make a real difference in the world. Our teaching and research equips healthcare professionals with the tools to transform patients’ lives.

Our courses take place in the heart of London. But they’re known around the world. In the latest QS World University Rankings, we were number 2 in the UK and number 5 in the world for nursing.

We’d like to think our reputation is justified. After all, we’ve been here since Florence Nightingale started her Training School in 1860. We’ve grown a lot over the years – with the addition of midwifery and the Cicely Saunders Institute, we’re now a faculty of 200 staff and 3,000 students.

Developing world-renowned clinicians

These days we teach our students to care for people in the most effective way possible. Whether they’re taking their first steps in healthcare or improving their existing skills, we prepare graduates for success anywhere in the world.

King’s alumni are daring, challenging the status quo and actively working to make the world a better place. And they’re compassionate. They care about their patients and do whatever they can to meet their needs.
