King's College London plan to open campus in Germany

Kings College London has confirmed that plans “are in progress” to open a campus in Dresden, Germany. In doing so, they could become the first university to open a European campus since the results of last year’s referendum to leave the EU. The institution has already collaborated with Technische Universität Dresden on a research called Transcampus, through which they offer 10 joint professorships and joint PhD programmes to students. The plans would mean KCL could gain a larger status in Europe as well as access to funding. The dean, Professor Stefan Bornstein, said: “It’s a nice way to have a solution to get around this very stupid Brexit idea." While universities like Birmingham have plans to open a campus in Dubai, there are several universities that are believed to be branching out in Europe following Brexit. However, earlier this year Oxford was forced to deny claims they were opening a campus in Paris.
