My three years at King’s College London pursuing a degree in War Studies and History have been formative and engaging. I have made friends from all over the World, I can confidently say that I have special knowledge in a number of fields and that I have attained polyvalent skills which will permit me to engage not just in professions similar to my degree but in any field. I engaged fully with student life. I joined societies and even helped start one (the French Debate Society). I have enjoyed myself, partaking in innumerable outings both within and without King’s. You get out of university what you want to; it all depends on you. If you’re the type of person who shows up to class and leaves right after and does not partake in student life, then you will not enjoy this as I have. If you decide to be active, be positive and seize every academic, professional and social opportunity that come your way, you can make this some of the best three years of your life. The only negatives I would give King’s would be the administration, particularly the War Studies department’s and the growing size of the student body in a university in which social spaces are too few (even though there are many) to meet demand (not completely their fault). Otherwise, War Studies was a great programme. I would offer one recommendation though: take War Studies only; do not take a joint honours.
