Study at King's College
University of London
Popular with students because of its central London location and long and distinguished reputation, King's College is known for its academic quality in the biological and health sciences, humanities, and physical sciences. The Department of War Studies, unique among UK institutions, offers courses in public policy and international relations. The Health Sciences faculty has one of the broadest course selections of any UK university and is regularly consulted by the government for comment and research on issues of public health. If you are considering medicine or any of the life sciences you will find distinctive pre-med options. For English literature students, King's offers a new program in English literature and theater that takes advantage of London's Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. And most recently, King's has introduced a Film Studies Program. Other subjects you may want to consider are: philosophy, theology, divinity and religious studies, and pure and applied mathematics.
At around 19,000 students, King's is one of the largest University of London Colleges. You will study in state-of-the-art facilities at one of King's three main campuses. Over the last few years, King's has spent almost £300 million on new buildings and renovations. Significant work was completed in 1999 on two of its campuses, and recently the College converted a stately Victorian-era structure into a modern library and information center to support Humanities, Law, and Physical Sciences and Engineering.
The Arcadia Advantage
An Arcadia program isn't just about enrolling you in an overseas institution however. It's about all of the services that we provide. Before you go, you can contact our program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you should pack. Once you arrive, our resident director will lead an orientation program in London that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of England as well as prepare you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system. During the semester, you can expect to participate in excursions that are designed to allow you to reflect on the learning that is taking place outside the classroom.
