Updates from KCLSU and King's about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

This is an unprecedented and rapidly evolving situation. Please make sure to keep yourself updated with the detailed FAQs on the King's website and regularly check your King's email address (.....@kcl.ac.uk) for updates. If you are self-isolating please let King's know so they can provide support to you.

We at KCLSU will continue representing your views at the highest levels of decision making. We will, in these times, put our best foot forward and strive to provide the best services for the entire student population.

Alternative Assessments

We understand that you may feel anxious about examinations and assessments, concrete information about the structure shall be released shortly by King's. We are working hard to ensure King's include suitable adjustments across the board, taking into account the current circumstances. However, if you do feel that you have been disadvantaged, please feel free to get in touch with us or the KCLSU Advice service which is now available remotely.

We encourage you to also leverage websites such as Coursera, who are offering their courses for free to students who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. This Facebook group, created by a few Postgraduate students from across the UK, offers support from your peers while studying.

Graduation Ceremonies

We are aware of the recent announcement about King’s not being able to deliver the graduations in July. We appreciate that this would indeed be disheartening news for you, your family and friends. We are currently trying to understand the nuances of the future celebratory events mentioned in the announcement. We will work to ensure that despite the difficult circumstances your achievements are celebrated and recognised.

KCLSU services, venues, hubs spaces and activity rooms

Alongside King's, KCLSU remains accessible to its members, however following the government’s announcements around social distancing measures and in line with King's we have accelerated our plans to transition towards providing as many of our services remotely as we can.

To mitigate the risks of spreading the novel Coronavirus through large groups coming together, our physical venues, activities including sports team training, spaces and activity rooms will be unavailable.

#ForeverKings

Our thoughts are with all members of our community in what is an anxious time for all of us. Finally, we wanted to pay tribute to all the brave medical staff, scientists and researchers on the frontlines of this fight.
