Welcome to our postgraduate community

Professor Vaughan Robinson

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study at King’s College London.

King’s is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society, and in doing so we have an outstanding reputation for undertaking cutting-edge research.

We are delighted to welcome you as part of our postgraduate community, working alongside some of the best academics from around the globe, and benefiting from our world-class libraries, resources and professional networks, as well as all the opportunities London has to offer.

Our dedicated Graduate School provides advice, support and facilities to ensure that King’s postgraduate students benefit from an exceptional educational experience and are able to fulfil their potential.

We hope you will make use of the wealth of opportunities available to help you develop your personal and professional skills and experience. As a postgraduate at King’s, you will have access to specialist careers advice, professional development workshops, life coaching, writing support, language skills development, teaching opportunities, work experience, conference attendance support and more.

If you are keen to meet fellow postgraduates in a social setting, there will be a postgraduate student only party on Thursday 29th September 2016, which is organised through the Student Union and is open to all new and existing King’s postgraduate students. You will also have access to postgraduate-only social lounges and study spaces, courtesy of the Graduate School.

For doctoral research students, the Graduate School will be hosting an induction session on Wednesday 28th September 2016. This event aims to welcome all new research students to the postgraduate community and help them settle into life at King’s while giving an overview of doctoral research matters across the university.

Once you’ve had a chance to settle in, join us for our Take Time out event in October. Designed specifically for research students, this free and fun event aims to encourage you to focus on your health and wellbeing and offers you the chance to meet fellow doctoral students – details about this will be announced soon.
