    The Campus

    The university is good, the standard of education is impressive and I’m always inspired by the people around me from their accomplishments to their depth of knowledge and most importantly how each individual carries themself. Personally, I believe the marking can be harsh so if you want that 1:1 you have to work extremely hard but once you achieve it, it is worth it. One of my favourite things about King’s College is the campus, it’s in the heart of London and has the best places to study, eat, and have a good time. However, one thing I will say is making friends in this uni may not be as easy as you think a lot of the time individuals prefer to stick to their old groups from sixth form or secondary but that is not to say you will not find friends because the beauty of a London university is you will be introduced to many individuals of various backgrounds.

    King's College London for English Majors

    As an English Major at King’s College London, I’ve had the privilege of learning under supportive and knowledgeable lecturers. However, I’ve also encountered some significant gaps in the educational experience, particularly in the lead-up to exams and coursework. The university doesn’t always provide adequate preparation or feedback, leading to a sense of being thrown into assessments blindly.

    One of the standout positives of my experience at King’s College London has been the support from lecturers. They’re approachable, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in helping students succeed. This creates a positive learning environment that fosters intellectual growth and confidence.

    However, one area where the university could improve is in the preparation for exams and coursework. There often seems to be a lack of structured guidance leading up to assessments, which can be particularly daunting for students who are new to the university or the subject matter. More guidance and feedback in the form of workshops, practice assessments, or individualized feedback sessions would be greatly beneficial.

    Another area for improvement is the seminar format. While seminars can be an invaluable opportunity for discussion and debate, I’ve found that some leaders are too quick to agree with everything said. This can stifle genuine debate and critical thinking. A more balanced approach that encourages respectful disagreement and challenges students to think critically would be more conducive to intellectual growth.

    Dynamic Politics: Navigating King's College London

    As I embark on the final leg of my journey as a Politics student at King’s College London, I find myself compelled to share the extraordinary events that have moulded my academic career.

    What distinguishes King’s is its unrelenting dedication to offering a complete and active political education. In my first year, I was introduced to the world of data analysis using STATA, a core ability that has since proved essential to my academic endeavours. This early immersion set the tone for a programme that constantly challenges and enhances pupils’ analytical abilities.

    Exploration of game theory, a discipline that brings theoretical concepts to life and provides a unique perspective on political decision-making, has proven equally compelling. This multidisciplinary approach, along with extensive study of political theory and international relations, has resulted in a comprehensive grasp of the complex factors that drive global politics.

    King’s strength resides not just in its curriculum, but also in the great teachers who act as guiding lights along this academic journey. Their enthusiasm for teaching and commitment to student development is obvious in every lecture, seminar and office hours. 

    Furthermore, King’s fosters an open and lively atmosphere that fosters both scholastic endeavours and personal growth. The Strand campus, with its rich history, provides an inspirational setting for intellectual inquiry.

    If I were to sum up my feelings about King’s College London, it would be one of tremendous gratitude for the transforming experience it has provided me. The active curriculum, committed teachers, and fascinating environment not only provided me with a solid foundation in politics and political economy but also fostered in me a strong desire to learn more about this subject.

    I definitely recommend King’s to any students looking for a dynamic and loving academic atmosphere. The range and depth of education available here, together with the rich history and welcoming community, distinguishes it as a standout institution in the field of higher education.

    An Enriching Academic Journey

    Studying social sciences at King’s College London has been a truly enriching experience. The program not only provides a comprehensive understanding of various social phenomena but also fosters critical thinking and analytical skills that are invaluable in today’s complex world.

    One standout aspect of my journey has been the dedicated faculty. The professors and instructors are experts in their fields, passionate about teaching, and always eager to engage with students. Their guidance and mentorship have significantly enhanced my academic growth.

    The university’s diverse and vibrant campus environment has allowed me to interact with students from all corners of the globe. This cultural exchange has broadened my perspectives and enriched my social network, making my time at King’s College London even more memorable.

    The library and research facilities are world-class, offering an abundance of resources for social science students. Whether it’s accessing academic journals or conducting in-depth research, the university provides the necessary tools to excel in our studies.

    However, it’s worth noting that the workload can be demanding, requiring strong time management skills. Yet, this challenge has contributed to my personal and academic growth, preparing me for the rigors of the real world.

    In conclusion, King’s College London’s social sciences program has been a fulfilling academic journey, equipping me with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate an ever-evolving society. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a well-rounded education in the field.

    One of the best universities to go all-round

    It’s social life is very good and timetable isn’t too draining. The learning is good that you get smaller group tutorials to consolidate your learning too. However the admin is horrendous and don’t expect your queries or problems to be solved quickly.

    My Experience at King's College London

    As a student who has the privilege of studying at King’s College London, I can whole-heartedly say that my experience has been incredible thus far. The university provides so much support and have ensured any concerns I may have are met. Whether it be quick arrangements for meetings with my personal tutor or their timely responses via email; the staff have always shown maximum interest. On multiple occasions from when I struggled at some points throughout my Biomedical Sciences degree they have gone above and beyond enabling me to perform to the best of my abilities whilst also ensuring I feel comfortable.

    Moreover, the extremely prestigious university boasts a considerably high satisfactory rate whilst also being widely diverse and accepting of many different backgrounds – which is one thing, as a British Asian, has made me feel at ease.

    In addition, the facilities are amazing ranging from the different University Libraries in each of three main campuses to the up-to-date labs. Alongside, the location being in the.heart of London where it is extremely easy to travel to and from.

    Last but not least, the student life is extraordinary – the different characters you meet along thee way and the diverse groups of people makes it impossible to dislike the student life.

    Disorganised Administration

    So far, on my law course, I have enjoyed my time at the university. I have found that the vast majority of teaching staff are very approachable, helpful, and make themselves available in the event of any issues. However, following the release of examination results, I found there was an unacceptable level of disruption caused by a disorganised faculty resulting in a delay of exam result release as well as incorrect grades being given. This is not something you would expect or tolerate from an internationally-renowned educational institution, and left me feeling quite disappointed. Despite this, I appreciated the student body representing the law students by stepping up and taking in all feedback surrounding these issues so they can formulate concrete improvements and relay this information back to the faculty in order to improve. This is promising, and suggests the university is willing to improve, if they adequately implement and practice a new model of organisation.

    Great Studies

    Academic Programs and Departments:
    At King’s Business School, part of KCL University, there are different paths you can choose from. These include Business Management, International Management, Accounting, and Economics. Depending on your preference, you can go into a specific direction or opt for a more open course like mine—Business Management. In this course, each year offers various options ranging from marketing to accounting and economics. The main difference is in years 2 and 3, where each course focuses more on that specific area. I found my course really useful since it covered different subjects in the first year, making it easy for those without prior business studies experience. The course content stays current and the selected readings are up-to-date, always with the latest editions of books and academic material.
    Faculty and Teaching:
    The teaching staff is great and offers plenty of chances for feedback during office hours.
    Class Size:
    Classes at KBS happen at places like the Strand Building and Bush House across multiple campuses. Class sizes vary, from large auditoriums for mandatory modules, like Strategic Management in year 2, to smaller ones for elective courses.
    Campus Facilities:
    The university provides access to fantastic libraries with various study spaces, discussion rooms for group projects, and quiet areas. The Maughan Library stands out for its beauty. There’s also an online library with an extensive collection of books and articles, which is really helpful for research.
    Extracurricular Activities:
    There’s a wide range of student clubs to join. Before the academic year starts, a fair is held where you can meet club members and decide which ones to join. These clubs cover various interests from business to sports, hobbies, medicine, science, and cultural groups that can be really comforting for international students.
    Campus Location:
    The campus is conveniently located, close to several tube lines like District in Temple, and Northern and Bakerloo lines in Charing Cross. Plus, Covent Garden is nearby with lots of eating places, many offering student discounts through Student Beans or UNiDAYS.
