King's College London, University of London

Westminster | South East England

Diverse local nightlife Political City

Ucas code: K60

King's is the 'fun' university of London. We're slap bang in the middle of the world's best city, making us a rather big deal. Our five campuses are filled with academically driven, sports loving, volunteering and sociable students, with an active Students' Union who proudly promotes diversity, equality and fairness. Desmond Tutu, Florence Nightingale and John Keats all studied at King's.

      Academic Experience

      Geography is good at kings. First year is mainly coursework with 3 exams overall. Work can get a little stressful and guidance can sometimes be unclear, but most lecturers and staff are accessible by emails or forums for questions.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
