BA German & Modern Greek Studies
King's first attracted my attention because it is one of only a few UK universities where you can study German & Modern Greek in combination. After visiting the College for interview I was sure that this was the place I wanted to study. Both departments offer an impressive range of courses, and the freedom to specialise in whatever area interests me most is a major plus for me.
I spent a year abroad in Thessaloniki and Munich which was a great opportunity to stretch myself both academically and personally. I was able to pursue new things, and the experiences and insights I gained by living alone abroad are invaluable.
The rewards of living in London are obvious; there's always something to see or do, whatever your tastes and interests, and although there's no getting away from the fact that London is expensive, you'll find that many events are free or offer student discount. I really don't think there's a better time to enjoy a city like London than when you're a student!
