King's international strategy

King’s has a distinguished reputation for research excellence and collaborative thinking, showcased by our diverse range of global activity.

In order to continue to enhance our position as a world-leading institution, one of our key strategic aims is to continue to expand this range as well as to embed an international perspective in the very fabric of the College, in the same manner as research and teaching excellence are fully ingrained. Our internationalisation aims, based on mutuality and reciprocity, are focused on the following themes:

  • University partners: Developing institution-wide collaborations with like-minded universities across the globe, based on a shared research vision and excellence that contributes to high-quality teaching and learning programmes. Further specialised linkages will also be pursued at School/Department level to enhance research capacity or the quality of the student experience.
  • Joint teaching and research: Recognising that partnerships should be based on teaching and research collaborations, with the development of dual and joint degree programmes where possible.
  • Global Institutes: Encouraging interest amongst King’s staff and students in key overseas nations through the development of teaching and research programmes at King’s focused on specific nations/regions.
  • Staff and student mobility: Supporting King’s students to spend part of their degree programme at a key partner overseas and developing more opportunities for staff exchange.
  • International recruitment: Attracting the most talented staff and students from all over the world.
  • International alumni: Engaging international King’s alumni in promoting understanding of their nations, in assisting King’s students and in enhancing King’s international brand.
  • Developmental partnerships: Building a programme of developmental linkages, especially with nations that are less well positioned economically than the UK, in order to enhance research and teaching/learning capacities within these nations.
