My time at King’s College London was marked by self-sufficiency and learning how to navigate not just the university but also London. It’s a good place to study, create your own timetable and pursue interests either via societies or outside of campus. The libraries were good and well stocked with nice facilities, and the campuses themselves were good places to study. Sometimes, in the first year especially, the city and the expectation to know how to do everything yourself is a little overwhelming. The support systems could have been stronger, especially for freshers, but I think that the experience teaches you an important set of skills to sit alongside an academic degree. Ideal for independent students looking to experience the real world alongside their studies, but maybe not the best environment for students seeking a large amount of comfort, support and regular guidance.
