Founded within the tradition of the Church of England by the Duke of Wellington and King George IV, who granted our royal charter in 1829, King's has a proud history of inspiring and supporting those who seek to solve the world's most pressing problems.

From research that led to the discovery of the structure of DNA and informing air pollution awareness and policy to developing life-changing therapies and making maths education available to underrepresented groups – these are some of the ways that we continue to have a transformational impact on society.

Education at King’s is undergoing an exciting transformation. For almost 200 years King's has been at the cutting edge of research-enhanced teaching, educating our students to become critical thinkers and to lead and change the world.

By 2029 King’s will be a world-leading community of learners with students and staff working across disciplines to change the world for the better.
