School Description

King’s College London was founded in the tradition of the Church in 1828 by a group of eminent politicians, churchmen and others. The College was granted a royal charter by King George IV in August 1829. Over the years King’s College merged with several institutions including the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals; Chelsea College; Queen Elizabeth College; and the Institute of Psychiatry.

Today King’s College London is one of the world’s leading Universities for both education and research. 12 Nobel Laureates have worked and studied at King’s: Charles Barkla, (1917) won a Nobel Prize for his  research into X-rays and other emissions; Sir Owen Richardson (1928) for pioneering the study of ‘thermionics’; Professor Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins (1929) for research on vitamins and beriberi; Professor Sir Charles Scott Sherrington (1932) for research on the nervous system; Sir Edward Appleton (1947) for exploration of the ionosophere; Dr Max Theiler (1951) for developing a vaccine for yellow fever; Maurice Wilkins (1962) for the discovery of the structure of DNA; Reverend Desmond Tutu (1984) for Peace; Sir James Black (1988) for the development of beta-blocker and anti-ulcer drugs; Mario Vargas Llosa (2010) for Literature; and Professor Peter Higgs (2013) for Physics.

          • Testimony
            2011-2012, Bachelor of Science (BSc)

            After completing my second year of medical school at St George’s, University of London, I pursued an intercalated BSc in Neuroscience at King’s College London between 2011 and 2012. I took myself away from a small hospital in the vibrant and ethnically rich suburb of Tooting and found myself in London Bridge, a place dominated by a crowd of pin striped suits and London’s best budget eateries. Settling into life on campus was much easier than I had anticipated. At King’s, intercalating students are taught with third year students on standard entry BSc programmes. Within a degree specialty, students can choose from a wide variety of modules relevant to their course. As such, each module comprised students from various backgrounds, both internally and externally, which helped me to integrate because new social groups were formed every term. One of the challenges I encountered during my year was playing catch up with the knowledge base expected for students on the pre-existing three year programme. The nature of the year itself, however, is self directed so taking a pre-emptive and proactive stance in such circumstances is encouraged. My intercalated BSc provided high quality research training that I would not have gained at medical school. By the end of the year, I became proficient at using a pipette and quite the Drosophila melanogaster “dissector extraordinaire”, having dissected hundreds of flies’ brains as part of my laboratory research project. Two years on, my project provided the platform for me to present my research internationally at a conference in San Diego. The undergraduate teaching and research training experience I gained during the year was invaluable and ultimately allowed me to explore clinical sciences in greater depth and make my unique contribution in science research.
