King's College London


King’s College London, established in 1829 and a founding college of the University of London, is one of the world’s leading research and teaching universities, based in the very heart of London.

King’s is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society. We are one of the top 10 UK universities in the world (QS World University Rankings, 2022; THE, 2022).

Over the past 180 years King’s has made an extraordinary contribution to modern life, particularly in the areas of humanities, law, the sciences (including a wide range of health areas such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing and dentistry) and social sciences including international affairs. We have played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar. We are the largest centre for the education of healthcare professionals in Europe; no university has more Medical Research Council Centres.

Currently over 33,000 students from more than 150 countries study at King’s, with over 15,000 postgraduate students. We employ around 9,500 staff and boast 14 Nobel Laureates and more than 57,000 registered international alumni.

About King’s Online

King’s Online is the unit within the new School for Professional and Continuing Education at King’s, responsible for the development of a range of fully online courses and programmes with the university’s departments and faculties. Formed in November 2015, we have expanded rapidly as King’s has fully embraced online learning – the King’s Strategic Vision 2029, for instance, sets out a commitment to become the UK leader in online and blended learning by 2029. Our multi-skilled, multi-faceted team is made up of project managers, learning and visual designers, design technologists, content developers, web and accessibility developers, e-learning assistants, UX designers and researchers, media producers and editors and a games development team based in Cornwall, who work with King’s departments to bring their world-leading content to life. Working in close partnership with faculties, we develop fully online postgraduate programmes, Master’s degree programmes, blended programmes and, of course, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
