The best things about the university are the locations of the campuses and the international student it draws in. I studied computer science so I spent most of my time at the Strand campus, it’s about a 5 minute walk from Convent Garden, and 10 minutes from Trafalgar Square. The ridiculous amount of $$ international student pay for tuition pays for the real estate of the university and nothing else, at least from my experience studying and working at the university.
Most of my friends were also international students which made it easier making friends, just keep in mind that the British student tend to keep to themselves rather than mingle with the international crowd.
At least in bachelor in Computer Science you don’t actually get a lot of support from the faculty when struggling with the material taught. This program is built for people who have experience in coding so beware. The international professors are extremely nice and helpful but they don’t actually have a lot of time due to the ridiculous amount of students at each course.
Keep in mind that it is an English university and they DO NOT give student personal attention or help them in any way, I’ve never experienced as much bioreactor as I did when attending King’s.
The do not let students transfer do a different program during or after the first year, so be 110% sure you love the program you chose because there is no backing down. A frustrating example is when they wouldn’t let me transfer from Computer Science to Computer Science with Management, where the only factual difference between the programs in one or two management courses a year instead of computer science courses alone.
You can’t build your own schedule or take courses from other programs at the university so keep that in mind, I wasn’t aware of that before attending the univeristy.
