King's College London, University of London

Westminster | South East England

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.

      Nightlife

      You're in London. There's everything you could want and more. Fancy cocktails at Mahiki. Dirty night out at Walkabout. Gay scene at Heaven. Drinks can be costly. Especially at Fabric or XOYO but special nights out can be great.

    • The downside

      University cafe has good food for decent prices, but there are plenty of cafes and supermarkets in the vicinity.

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.
