The King's Doctoral Students' Association [KDSA] is the recognised representative body of the Postgraduate Research Student community. It is an autonomous body within the KCLSU representative structure. As a King’s doctoral student, you’re automatically part of KDSA.
Aim & Mission
KDSA is independent of King’s and works with the university to drive the changes doctoral students want.
- Uphold, extend and defend the rights of doctoral/ postgraduate research students at King’s.
- Establish a Peer Support Network for both academic and non-academic issues.
- Promote student-led activity amongst new and existing PGR communities to build professional skills, share research ideas & network.
The KDSA lead collective campaigning to bring change and improve the experience for their student community and beyond.
