Daniele Delgrosso, MSc Student
I chose King's based on its reputation as one of the most prestigious universities in the world with excellent quality of teaching and academic links to the industry in my specific subject. Studying at King's allowed me to be at the heart of one of the major world cities with great employment opportunities. The Department of Informatics has a strong relationship with organisations who offer graduate placements exclusively to KCL students, including opportunities abroad.
I am funding my studies independently based on part-time work in my undergraduate degree and summer holidays. I would recommend studying at King's based on the quality of teaching, the lively social atmosphere on campus and the opportunity to learn from some of the most respected staff in the computing industry.
Campus facilities are excellent, there are many cafés including the student union bar with breathtaking panoramic views of London's Southbank. The campus is in the heart of the city with access to many restaurants, theatres and landmarks. Part-time work is definitely available and the careers service will be able to provide assistance with looking for work. As a student there are also discounts available in many shops and this allows your money to go further.
