King’s College London Innovation Forum, King’s College London Health and Life Science Enterprise Committee and Entrepreneurship have put together a unique opportunity for you to use your problem-solving skills to come up with solutions to tackle global health challenges we face today. The event is free and open to all at KCL. This special event offers you the opportunity to:
Develop ideas in teams to tackle health challenges including (but not limited to) obesity, antimicrobial drug resistance, diabetes and cancer.
Receive feedback on the idea from a panel of experts from PwC, QuintilesIMS etc.
Present your idea to a panel of judges with expertise in global health from leading organisations including GSK.
Each participant will receive a certificate and have chance to win a prize!
If you don’t have an idea or a team, don’t worry just come along and the organisers will assist you in finding a team. If you cannot participate in the workshop, you can still attend the final team presentation. There will be a reception with free food and drinks, plus the opportunity to build your professional networks and develop contacts that may be beneficial for the next step in your career.
This scheme will run as a pilot during the year 2017 and is subject to review over the summer. If successful, there may be an opportunity to roll this out wider across the campuses. Space is limited and allocation will be offered on a needs basis.

WORKING AFTER YOUR STUDIES – FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
PhD students who are nearing the end of their studies can apply to stay in the UK for a further year under the Doctorate Extension Scheme, which comes under the Tier 4 route. The Doctorate Extension Scheme (DES) is designed to give PhD graduates from outside the EU the opportunity to work in the UK for a year once they have completed the PhD. Students who hold this visa can undertake most forms of work on a full or part-time basis, including self-employment, but cannot work as a doctor or dentist in training or a professional sportsperson or coach.
Students interested in applying for the DES are advised to start thinking about their application a couple of months before they need to apply. A new CAS from King’s is required for the DES application, and it is recommended that students request this CAS at the same time as their viva, or just afterwards. Together with completing the online CAS request form, students must also complete a declaration form, agreeing to respond to King’s monitoring emails during your time on the Tier 4 (DES) visa.
Please note: you cannot apply for the Tier 4 (Doctorate Extension Scheme) from outside the UK.
As part of the King’s Research Consultancy, King’s Together is seeking a post-upgrade PhD student at King’s College London to work on a sub-project as part of an exciting new project to research patient flow in a hospital environment.
