King's College London was founded by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington (then Prime Minister) in 1829 as a university college in the tradition of the Church of England. It now welcomes staff and students of all faiths and beliefs.

King's professors played a major part in nineteenth-century science and in extending higher education to women and working men through evening classes. The College has grown and developed through mergers with several institutions each with their own distinguished histories. These include the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, Chelsea College, Queen Elizabeth College and the Institute of Psychiatry.

King's College London was founded in 1828-9 by a group of eminent politicians, churchmen and others. They wanted a Church of England alternative to what later became University College London (UCL, founded in 1826), known as 'the godless college in Gower Street'. King's was granted a royal charter by King George IV on 14 August 1829.

The University of London was established in 1836 with King's and UCL its two founding colleges.

King's College London is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society. The school has a distinguished reputation for research excellence and collaborative thinking, showcased by their diverse range of global activities.

In order to continue to enhance their position as a world-leading institution, one of the key strategic aims of King's College London is to continue to expand this range as well as to embed an international perspective in the very fabric of the College, in the same manner as research and teaching excellence are fully ingrained. Their internationalization goals, based on mutuality and reciprocity, are focused on the following themes: developing University partners, recognizing joint teaching and research, encouraging global institutes, supporting staff and student mobility, recruiting internationally, and engaging international alumni.
