King's: Lack of University Spirit

Generally the university scores very high on most criteria. It provides proper education, the facilities are modern and well-maintained, the lecturers and tutors are clear and usually provide detailed and useful feedback. Overall, the university is a very good one, but there are a couple of things that lack in my opinion. One of those is the option for more creative work due to a lack of variety in projects (the university is mainly concerned with research, essays, and strict mathematical problems). Most of the policies, such as the grading one, are a bit obscure as they rely on criteria such as “requires good analysis”. Students usually are not shown examples of what “good analysis” means, so this can be quite subjective, resulting in lower grades, especially in the humanitarian subjects, such as mine. In addition, the central location of the university (which is really comfortable) plays a role in the whole “university spirit”. Students do not hang out that often due to the lack of an actual campus as there are streets with cars between most of the university’s buildings. Although there’s a good variety of societies, most do not organize bigger gatherings (usually due to financial constraints), which again impacts the whole “community spirit”. Another point that should be made (which may be applicable to other universities in Central London as well) is the high accommodation prices. Most of the rooms are really well-looking, but I would not say they are worth the 300 GBP some of those costs.
