    Great experience

    I really recommend kings, I’m doing the PPE programme, and the opportunities within the university have been great. I went to Singapore for a semester abroad which ended up being an incredible experience despite COVID, and I ended up saving money in tuition fees!

    KCL

    Despite ranking as one of England’s oldest institutions, King’s College London is one of the most ethnically diverse. Some may argue that it might not have a “university feel” being located in the heart of London, with its campuses being stretched from Denmark Hill all the way to Strand. Though I personally feel that this makes the social life that much more fun, travelling from campus to campus for social events, meeting students across different courses and feeling content in the knowledge that we’re all part of the same whole. From a young age, I have always looked forward to the prospect of the university but my first year at King’s felt like being bound and thrown into the deep end. A result of Insufficient and inadequate help from lecturers and personal tutors who I initially thought would act like university guides. The bottom line is that there is no ‘how to survive university rulebook” or “how to achieve a first” guideline – you are forced to learn the ropes as you go along and while some may thrive in such a situation, not everyone does. A little help can go a long way. I do believe increased contact time or a better form of student-professor outreach can help solve this. Being a university student, you’re in a bubble. For the most part, students are just trying to pass and complete their degrees, some have concrete postgraduate plans but others don’t. King’s needs to do better at bridging this gap. Mental health is another issue a number of university students face and as a result has impacted their studies significantly. Many may even feel like their university outreach for mental health is poor. Surprisingly, I cannot say I have had a single negative experience with King’s outreach on this and in fact have found their team to be extremely helpful, understanding and lenient in all our interactions. To summarise my experience at King’s and something I’ve learnt along the way, I’d like to quote Dumbledore “Help will always be given at Hogwarts (King’s)…to those who ask for it”.

    Mixed bag

    This university has an amazing social life with a huge range of students. Definitely the most diverse environment you could be in. I love the location of King’s as it has its perks. Not being a campus university is a very small sacrifice when looking at the bigger picture. The heart of London is the best place to be. However, I think King’s takes independence to a whole new level. Personally, I feel students as individuals do not get pushed to grow as much because of the extensive freedom. More guidance would be great, especially in regards to career options and post-uni paths. There is also an urgent need for the university to be more attentive in regards to the mental health and well being of their students as university can be an extremely pressurising time of their lives and I don’t feel like students get enough attention from professional counsellors. Additionally, it is FAR too expensive. I regularly question what we are paying for, and the £9.25k per year alongside maintenance loan impacts those with low-income backgrounds disproportionately, putting students like myself at a huge disadvantage as the student debt is ridiculous. This ultimately widens the gap between the ‘rich’ and the ‘poor’. I am a Young Carer, so home responsibilities have negatively impacted my education, focus and ability to manoeuvre relative to other students. King’s has paid no attention to this whatsoever and I’ve been completely alone with my problems. Whilst paying so much money – you’d think you’d get some benefits. I’ll end this review with a quote which perfectly summarises life at King’s:

    “We are travelling on the same river, with different boats”

  • Education
    Supportive staff

    I really enjoyed my time at King’s and got a lot out of talking with the staff and other students. It was a good academic community in the faculty of Social Science and Public Policy. Having our master’s year interrupted by Covid19 was such a shame as I was enjoying it so much.

    KCL Review

    Great university, great tutors, huge diversity of students, great societies to be a part of. However, quite unorganised with lectures and timetables. Overall, I would recommend the uni to other people.

    Overall a good university with good teaching

    I personally felt that in general, dentistry in KCL was taught well and they had good timing in teaching the theoretical and practical sides of dentistry. That way, the knowledge could be grasped in a logical manner. They can be disorganised at times, but I suppose every organisation can be from time to time. The tutors are for the most part, fantastic and are probably the best quality of the university.

    Great experience in the heart of London

    I enjoyed my experience at KCL – especially it being in the heart of London. I was at Guys Campus where I enjoyed the large array of extra-curricular activities and the new facilities made however I would have liked there to be more library space and more social areas there such as in Bush House.

    Education program: focused on UK primary schooling

    A note of caution that almost all courses at the KCL ECS department on education focus on primary schooling in the United Kingdom. Other countries barely are talked about, higher education topics are not discussed at all.

    Great teachers!

    Teachers of Kings are very passionate and responsible. Some experienced professors are even important figures at their research areas. At the same time, young lecturers have their passions about teaching. Definitely I would recommend Kings to others.
