Administrative/Biographical history:

The Associate of King's College London is a distinctive qualification of King's that was awarded from 1833 as a form of degree equivalent. A number of students, however, also sat the examinations of the professional societies and in the case of medical students, the examination of the University of Edinburgh. University of London degrees were also introduced from 1836. In 1846, with the introduction of theological teaching, a Theological AKC was initiated as a vocational qualification of choice. In the course of the 19th century the University of London degree gradually took precedence over other qualifications and, in 1909, the time of the incorporation of the College into the University, the AKC was offered to students who followed a course of religious studies in addition to their main academic subject. In recent decades its scope has been widened to reflect broad ethical, philosophical and social issues.
