    Great Law School

    The good:____The law school is excellent. The professors are world-class authorities in the field and it is likely that the textbook some of the sources used will be written by professors at the college. They are not only great academics, but also great teachers. The support system is also really good. __In order to make the most of the university, you must be proactive in terms of extra-curricular activities. Being located in central London, there is a wealth of opportunities available for students looking to further their personal and professional development. There are also amazing student-led societies for all purposes. ____The bad:__In general the residences are not very good, and the residence team can be inefficient. There is not much visibility in terms of which residence you will be allocated, and there is little scope for switching accommodations after being given an offer. __For introverted students, it can be difficult to properly engage with the student community and make the most of your time at university.__

    Great location, nice campuses, good teaching overall

    I did my undergraduate degree at King’s College London and really enjoyed it. __I studied international relations, a course I loved thanks to the variety of modules available for study. In terms of extracurricular activities, there is a lot available too, as long as you make sure to get involved yourself!

    Great school

    I personally really like KCL. Other than the incredible people that I met, I have been involved in many sports and other societies from which I learnt a lot and had a lot of fun. From an academic perspective, I think it can be as challenging as students want it to be. There is a lot of material to go beyond the minimum knowledge required to pass the course. From a career perspective I think it is a good place, I lent a lot of interviews and I think the name of the school helped me quite a bit. Although it is not the best name out there (behind 3 other schools in the UK I would say) it is good enough to open many doors. I am a 3rd year now and I really loved my undergrad at King’s, especially for the people that I met, the chance that I had to be involved in a million things and the vibe of the business school that is growing like crazy.

    Perfect balance between academic and social life!

    Would definitely recommend it! Great student atmosphere/life. The perfect mix of social life and academic life, particularly compared to other London Unis. London prices aren’t cheap though, however there are ways to help you find your time at King‘s

    Great department with supportive and engaging staff

    Although I don’t have much to compare it with, I enjoyed my 4 years at King’s. My course was pretty much exactly as it was described in the prospectus and I always understood how the course worked and how everything fitted together, as well as its overarching purpose within the degree. The academic staff were great – always around for a chat about the course and other pastoral and personal issues. Marking was generally fair, apart from in finals, where we had missed out on a lot of material due to the union strikes in 2018. The university was also great at offering well-paid (London living wage) jobs on part time bases to students, which was especially helpful given how expensive London is. The location of my department was excellent. One negative point was that the library was constantly understocked; there might only be 2 or 3 copies of a core text for a class available, meaning that often I would have to purchase a copy for myself.

    Truly the king of all the universities in UK

    Great location (literally the heart of London), lots of societies you can be involved in and many more. Negatives include poor teaching scheme (KCL is research oriented) and limited exchange opportunities. Overall 9 out of 10.

    Support from tutors.

    I have very much enjoyed my time at king’s. They excel in their societies, which put on many events, and in their student support. Particularly on an academic level, the tutors are always keen to hear your interests and provide you with relevant opportunities.

    Expensive, great location, decent teaching.

    I think KCL was very good overall. I enjoyed most of the teaching, though some of the lectures were a bit antiquated and some of the seminar leaders were less interested in the subject material than others. My favourite module was a shared module with two other faculties which was a bit hectic at times, but the ability to pick this meant you could meet people from other yet similar disciplines. The main positives would be the location and social opportunities, being in central London there were lots of culturally and recreationally interesting things to do and it was easy to meet with friends. The admin system was quite poor, but I think this is a common theme across all university’s. I would have liked there to be more societies or social integration into the main university. Though, overall a very positive experience.

    Support

    – The best thing about Kings would certainly be the level of passion and expertise that the staff at the institution have. The lecturers are experts in their field and that really is received in lectures. __- The support given to students with specific difficulties is amazing. I have dyslexia and the department created a specific plan to aid in my learning, which extends more than just extra time on exams. The help kings gives is so so great and supportive.__- The location of Kings is obviously amazing, smack bang in Central London, with its Strand and Waterloo campus. Going to King’s for myself is more of a living in London and attending university relationship, rather than just attending a university which happens to be in London. London takes center stage in the university experience at Kings. (Unless you try really hard to cater it otherwise and only immerse yourself in student activities)__-The biggest issue with Kings is probably consistency. Personally, I’ve had a perfectly supportive and engaging time with my faculty (Social Science

    A uni you would love, and its in central London!!

    Overall, it’s a uni worth spending 3 years studying! With a great variety of opportunities and events provided, you will get many other valuable experiences and things besides just academic knowledge. Most teachers and academic staff here are really friendly and they indeed are willing to teach and help you! And of course the stunning location of the college, just at both sides of River Thames, makes it very pleasant to study. However, the facilities are not very satisfying. To earn a better location of the college means that you have to give up some comfort. The campus is quite crowded and the facilities are a bit not up to date. Also, your uni life here may not be the same as you expected before. It is more like going to work but not going to uni, as it indeed just has some buildings and plenty of students at the campus.
