Founded in the year 1828-29 by an elite group of politicians and other eminent figures, King's College London is among the oldest universities in the UK. It is currently ranked in the top 10 universities in the UK according to QS World Rankings 2020. With more than 27,600 students (of whom around 10,000 are graduates) from across 150 countries across the world, the campus is home to a culturally diverse and active student crowd. King's College London has earned a distinguished reputation in various fields, such as law, the sciences which include a range of areas like nursing, medicine and dentistry as well as international affairs. This places the university in the top seven universities in the UK when it comes to research earnings with an overall annual income of more than £680 million.
Based in London’s city centre, King’s is spread across five campuses linked through the heart of the capital. Over the past few years, the university has partnered with the British Library, British Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe, Southbank Centre, Tate Modern, National Gallery, and many other recognised institutions across the country. The university’s central location and diverse partnerships not only allow students to get more employment opportunities but also to connect with one of the world’s most dynamic cities.
The moment you consider going to a university in London, you know you’ve made a great choice! London is a bustling city filled with life and students from every corner of the world, with diversity and inclusion at the centre of it. No wonder you need to find accommodation that will help you feel at home. King’s is just minutes away from Southwark and Waterloo, both of which are London’s trendiest areas for students. What’s more, you will be within walking distance from London Bridge Station as well as Waterloo Station.
The city of London offers a wide range of student accommodation – from affordable to expensive – depending on the location and budget. If you prefer a more independent space, you will find many studio apartments close to the university you attend. You can also opt for shared living spaces or en-suite rooms where you will be able to make the most of your time.
With one of the most extensive and largest developed transport networks in the world, London has a range of river and road systems spread across 32 boroughs, making it easier to explore the city. For students, the best mode of transportation is the Underground (the Tube), the Tramlink, and the London Overground which will take you to your destination within no time. Another great way to explore London is by river because you are not only going to beat the traffic but also will be able to enjoy the beaty of the city. If you are looking to skip the river system, go ahead and grab a bike for hire and bicycle around the streets and explore the city.
