K-Link is also run by a number of other departments at King’s College London including History, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies and the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery.
Each link school or college receives input from academic staff, postgraduate and undergraduate students in their link department at King’s to offer taster sessions to pupils. K-Link is part of the College’s widening participation activities.
The College also has a flagship K+ programme for year 12 & 13 pupils in Greater London. You can find out more about these projects and contact details for the team at their webpages.
There are activities hosted at King's College London that may be of interest to students. For instance, King's College London Geography Department offers university taster courses for prospective undergraduate students. For further information and a programme of forthcoming courses, please see the website.
Our department runs a programme, known as “K-Link”, in selected schools and colleges where there are many bright students from areas where few people go on to university. In these link schools we help our Department to provide, over the course of a year, an academic visit, a visit about university life, undergraduate mentor visits and an Intrepid Explorers seminar.
Intrepid Explorers that have recently given/are due to soon give K-Link talks
We are committed to promoting and reinforcing the relevance and benefits of geography.
Inspired by the Royal Geographical Society's Geography Ambassador scheme and in association with King's College London Department of Geography, many of the Intrepid Explorers featured on this website are willing to come to schools, share their intrepid tales and inspire current and future generations of geographers!
We are particularly keen to help secondary school geography departments which wish to increase the profile and uptake of geography as a school subject.
Many of our explorers are RGS Geography Ambassadors. We offer a matchmaking service whereby teachers can specify the curriculum topics and if there is an explorer whose talk relates to that area(s) that is a Geography Ambassador, we will make the introductions.
