King's College London
> King's College London
King's College London is one of the top 25 universities in the world (Times Higher Education 2009) and the fourth oldest in England. A research-led university based in the heart of London, King's has nearly 23,000 students (of whom more than 8,600 are graduate students) from nearly 140 countries, and some 5,500 employees.
The College offers an intellectually rigorous environment supported by welcoming and caring traditions. 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, and it is now the largest centre for the education of doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals in Europe and home to six Medical Research Council centres.
King’s location in the heart of London and its strength in law, humanities and the social sciences make it a major player in forging links between the arts, culture and universities, and in the development of public policy at national level. Its very broad range of subjects, including also physical sciences and engineering, are increasingly inter-related, notably in fields such as bioinformatics, health policy and medical humanities.
King’s nine Schools of Study are Arts & Humanities; Biomedical & Health Sciences; the Dental Institute; Law; Medicine; the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing & Midwifery; Physical Sciences & Engineering; the Institute of Psychiatry, and Social Science & Public Policy.
