Administrative/Biographical history:

The Registry is responsible for the organisation and audit of academic and educational provision throughout the College, most notably in overseeing examinations and academic assessment exercises, and by way of organising ceremonies and graduations. Recently, the Registry has become a sub-section of the Office of the College Secretary and Registrar that has responsibility for servicing the Council, its main standing and special committees, and the Academic Board.


Scope and content/abstract:

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.
