The program and content definitely exceeded my expectations. In the first semester, I took: Digital Marketing Strategy, Digital Marketing Communications, Digital Consumer Behaviour, and Research in Marketing. We had a consulting project across all four modules and I found it very valuable to apply theoretical concepts to a real life business. The teachers were also all very supportive. In the 2nd semester, we got to choose our modules and I did: BrandingView more

I am a first-year student at Kings College London studying Social Sciences. While getting into this fairly new course at KCL that began just 3 years ago, I was unsure about what experiences I would have. The Social Sciences course offered a multitude of real-life applications to daily lectures, broadening my spectrum not only as a student but as a well-informed individual of society. Furthermore, in this course, we have optional modules such as the work placement module that offer students an experience to do some groundwork correlating to the things we study.
With all of the fantastic aspects of this course, there are still a few improvements I could foresee. This includes the assignment we are made to do. Our assignments are focused on a ton of readings and writing essays. While that may prove to be extremely helpful, as a student, I would have liked more group assignments and other forms of writing.
All in all, the course does provide helpful resources for further education or career options such as the obvious, becoming a social scientist, and a foundation for careers such as journalism, law, and more. I would highly recommend studying this course.View more
I am an International Relations student at King’s and the modules that this course has to offer is of great interest to me. I find that many aspects of the course are not predominantly Eurocentric and extend to various geopolitical topics and issues for debate. I also receive good support with career prospects and undergraduate internship schemes that I can apply to and consider as a postgraduate career path. I would say that the personal tutor scheme could be improved in communication, in efforts to support students in any difficulties experienced with the course.View more
The programme was excellent and great value for money. The cohort was engaged and excited to learn. The faculty were friendly, responsive and equally enthusiastic about both teaching and research. University is in a prime location to get the best out of your university experience and link up with top employers.View more
New country, new city, new university. It sounds terrible but the community at King’s definitely made it easier. I remember my first day on campus, meeting people that I am still friends with to this day and remembering how everyone was eager to introduce themselves. Everyone has a story and everyone is different but our love for Medicine makes us all have something in common. I really enjoyed the variety of class types that we had and the early dissection and clinical exposure.
In order to further improve my experience, I would appreciate some more support from admin when it comes to replying to emails or absences for certain circumstances. The community is very international and therefore the understanding when it comes to international students should also mirror this.View more
I especially like the course design. The content of each lesson was very interesting. The college encourages auditing, and the elective classes in one college can be mixed, and the content is very rich, so you can meet students from different majors.
School life is very rich, there are various cultural activities. The environment is very diverse and international, and there are many opportunities. My career path is very clear, but it is really hard to find a job abroad.
King’s College is an amazing university, and I am proud to be a student there. Professors support you whenever you need them and teach their material in an entertaining way. The online learning system is clear and useful, and when going to on campus classes they are always worth your time.View more
There is a great sense of community at King’s and it really helps to get involved with sports and extra-curriculars. I would say that it is a little bit difficult at times as a commuting student, but if you really get involved there’s no reason why you can’t get the most out of it.View more
Good lectures, helpful staff, nice people, well-structured course. Professors would happily listen to feedback and are always willing to help with coursework etc. Loads of extracurricular societies, easy to meet people for other London unis too.View more
