There are some 7000 students from outside the UK attending the university from around 150 different countries. As well as the Student Union there are also other facilities on offer to help adjust to life in the UK including the English Language Centre and help with legal paperwork such as visas, money and fees advice and general assistance with getting settled in. The London Student's Union, which later became the King's College London Students Union was founded back in 1873 and has claims to be the oldest in Europe. It provides students with a vast range of activities outside the classroom including over 50 different sports clubs and some 200 activity groups. It operates two bars, a shop and a gym on campus. Its student media came in the top three in the country and has an award winning website. In 2011, the union was responsible for the first student-led think tank in London, which has a membership of around 2000, making it the largest of its kind in Europe. It covers seven different policy areas and assists in lobbying politicians, NGO's and other policymakers. It also produces a peer-reviewed journal each September called The Spectrum.
