King's College

About the King's College London Summer Program

King's College London was established by Royal Charter in 1829 by patrons wishing to challenge both the supremacy of Oxford and Cambridge and the explicit secularism of the new University College London founded just three years prior. Today it is the second largest college of the 50 federated institutions that comprise the University of London. King's College is one of England's oldest and most prestigious university institutions: a multi-faculty research-led university college based in the heart of London with over 19,700 students, of whom more than 6,200 are postgraduates. King's three main campuses are ideally situated within a single square mile of Central London. From this central locale, students are within walking distance to Covent Garden, with its brimming market streets lined with street performers, and the theater district surrounding Trafalgar Square. King's combination of intellectual distinction and optimal location offer study abroad students the opportunity to expand their boundaries both academically and socially. Most recently, King's College London was named 'University of the Year 2010/2011' by The Sunday Times.
