Subject groups

KCLA has a growing number of subject groups bringing together alumni of various academic departments and disciplines of King's. Whilst some, such as the Dental Alumni, are large societies that have been established for decades, KCLA is keen to grow and diversify this by supporting the creation of new groups, such as the new Physics & Chemistry branch.
