I chose King's because of its impeccable pedigree in academia. Studying at King's and its location in the heart of London, described as 'the knowledge capital of the world' is indeed worthwhile and an unforgettable experience. The serene environment, excellent free IT services and the well-tailored courses to meet current developmental challenges are unmatched, not forgetting the countless theatres and galleries at one's disposal.
The cordial lecturer-student relationship and the willingness of everyone to help in times of need are indeed very awesome. I have improved upon my academic writing and analytical skills through the free skills training courses offered by the English Language Centre and the thought-provoking weekly seminars organised by the Geography Department.
Asides studies, the regular recruitment programmes offered by Career Services Centre, provide numerous job opportunities for students. Employers are very cooperative that it makes combining work with studies an easy task.
My studies are supported mainly by the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme. Without this scholarship, I would not have had the benefit of 'tasting' and tapping into King's distinctive worth of knowledge.
I intend to return to Ghana upon completion to live my dream as environment and development consultant, drawing on the expert knowledge I expect to gain from the programme. I recommend King's to everyone who wants to live their dream and not just to have a dream, because of its image as centre of excellence.
