About the University
The English public research university King’s College London, also referred to as King’s or KCL is located in London. In 1829, King’s was established by a royal charter with the help of King George IV and the Duke of Wellington. The University of London was founded in 1836 by two colleges, one of which was King’s. It is one of the country’s oldest academic institutions.
King’s increased in size as a result of several mergers in the latter half of the 20th century, including those with Queen Elizabeth College and Chelsea College of Science and Technology in 1985, the Institute of Psychiatry in 1997, the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals in 1998, and the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery in 1998.
Five campuses make up King’s University: the historic Strand Campus in the center of London, Guy’s, St. Thomas’, and Waterloo along the Thames, and Denmark Hill in south London. Additionally, it has facilities in Newquay, Cornwall, where its information service center is headquartered, as well as Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, where it performs professional military training. Nine faculties make up its academic operations, and inside each of those are numerous departments, centers, and research divisions.
King’s was ranked joint-14th overall in The Sunday Times’ 10-year (1998-2007) average ranking of British institutions based on continuous league table performance. The university, however, has recently performed worse in domestic league tables, coming out of the top 20 in none of the three major tables for 2016.
The tuition for the Newsweek Global Leadership MSc Scholarships is up to £24,660.
