TwinsUK does not run any taught courses within the department, however King’s College London offers several taught masters courses which link to our research and provide opportunities to study twin research. We do offer PhD opportunities within the department, dependent on funding. Please see our Study with Us page to find out more about both taught courses and currently available PhDs. Further details can also be found on the KCL Research Degrees page.
If you are a King’s College London undergraduate student looking to undertake your final year research dissertation, we provide a list of supervisors to relevant courses each year. You can contact researchers on this list to ask if they are able to be your project supervisor.
