Content & structure

Scope and content

King's College London undergraduate student files, 1937, 1941, 1949-1951, 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961, 1963-1967, 1969-1972, 1976-1991 (Ref: KAR/FP), postgraduate student files, 1958, 1967, 1969-1971 (Ref: KAR/FPPG), Postgraduate Certificate of Education PGCE student files, 1978, 1981-1985, 1987-1988 (Ref: KAR/PGCE), PGCE enrolment forms, 1987-1988 (Ref: KAR1/FP), European Young Lawyers Course student files, 1983-1985 (Ref: KAR/EYLC). This series covers all subjects and includes withdrawals and non-award students. Files for students whose degree spanned the merger of King's with Chelsea and Queen Elizabeth in 1985 have been incorporated into this series. Undergraduate records from 1937-1972 consist mainly of a letter of confirmation. Later files for both undergraduates and postgraduates contain a Universities Central Council on Admissions (UCCA) form, enrolment forms and course unit registration forms. Many undergraduate files for 1986 contain only enrolment forms for the final year.
