If plans proceed as reported, King's College London will become the first institution for higher education in the United Kingdom to establish a physical campus on the European continent in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum, reports Deutsche Welle.
The London-based university plans to open an offshore campus in the eastern German city of Dresden. The move would build on its ongoing research collaboration Transcampus with the Technische Universität Dresden.
The plans for a King's campus in Dresden were announced in Times Higher Education, a British weekly magazine focused on higher education news. Stefan Bornstein, the Transcampus dean as well as the director and chair of the department of medicine at TU Dresden and an honorary consultant in diabetes and endocrinology at King's, told Times Higher Education that an “offshore King's College Europe institution in Dresden" was "in the process."
