King's College London is one of the top 30 universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2012) and the fourth oldest in England. We are a research-led university based in the heart of London, with over 25,000 students from nearly 150 countries.
King’s has a long tradition of welcoming students from the US, with over 1,000 American students studying at King’s each year across all levels and over 5,000 active alumni across the US. In 2012 King’s College London established a permanent outreach office in the US in order to enhance the College’s profile in North America and to build global partnerships for research collaboration and encourage mobility of staff and students. The office is the first in a network that King’s is planning to open internationally in order to build profiles in key regions and develop deeper relationships with the research, student and alumni communities. The King’s College London USA office is located in Alexandria, Virginia, within the great Washington, DC metropolitan area. This location allows King’s to build links with research, business, government and cultural organizations. For further information please visit www.kcl.ac.uk/usa

Furthermore, King’s has established a network of Global Institutes to promote understanding of fast changing parts of the world and encourage engagement with 21st century powers. Forming a core part of the College’s international strategy, the Global Institutes are designed to build connections – through study, staff and student exchange, research collaboration and knowledge sharing. Our four Global Institutes – the Brazil, Russia, India and China Institutes – focus on the influential new ‘BRIC’ economies, as part of a commitment to engage with contemporary issues in these nations and to deepen international understanding of their growth challenges and opportunities. The emphasis is on the contemporary, with a remit to understand the cultural, economic and political significance of these places in the 21st century. This contemporary theme also characterises the Institute for North American Studies, which focuses on a region that continues to have great cultural, economic and political significance.
Graduate study is at the heart of the College and we have over 8,600 graduate students. Our College mission is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society. King's has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA. Our strength in law, humanities and the social sciences make us a major contributor to links between the arts, culture and universities, and the development of public policy at a national level.
As a graduate student, you will join a vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment that enjoys a global reputation for excellence in both its teaching and research.
