About King’s

King’s University College at Western University offers “the best of both worlds” – big opportunities with a small community feel.

We are an intimate community of 3,500 students that offers small classes, personal interactions with professors and quality programs, combined with complete access to the best student experience at Western University. Founded in 1954, King’s affiliation with Western provides students with access to all university services, classes and programs and, most importantly, our graduates receive a Western degree.

We are located in the city of London, Ontario, and our campus is one block from Western University. Students can take courses at both campuses and easily move between the 2 on a free shuttle bus or enjoy the short walk. King’s backs on to the beautiful Thames River, is adjacent to green space and is a short distance from the vibrant clubs, restaurants, arts and sports scene of downtown London.

Cultural diversity thrives at King’s with students from every religious tradition, ethnicity and point of view. Approximately 20% of students are international and come from more than 30 different nations. Being part of a community with cultures from all around the world allows students to connect globally right on campus. We are also home of the Catholic chaplaincy team for Western, offering Catholic mass on campus and an active Campus Ministry team.

The quality of education at King’s stands second to none. Degree programs are available in areas such as:

  • Global Commerce
  • Management
  • Finance
  • Accounting
  • Social Sciences
  • Arts
  • Catholic Studies for Teachers
  • Disability Studies
  • Human Rights Studies
  • Thanatology
  • Childhood and Social Institutions
  • Social Justice and Peace Studies
  • Social Work
  • Master’s of Social Work

Renowned as a centre of teaching excellence, we have received top grades from national student surveys on the quality of teaching and student/faculty interactions. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 19:1, students can request more one-on-one time with professors.

Residence is available for approximately 400 students at both the first-year and upper-year levels, and student support services for academic, personal, spiritual or financial counselling are readily available.

We offer a generous scholarship and bursary program, and guarantee an Entrance Scholarship to high school students with final admission averages of 82% or greater. In addition, there is an extensive Work Study program on campus that allows you to be employed while studying.

As a community that values personal connections while maintaining a high standard of academic excellence, we absolutely offer “the best of both worlds”.
