When I decided to undertake my LLM in the UK, King's immediately came up as my first option, not only because of its elevated position in universities rankings and worldwide prestige, but also due to its location. London is the perfect place for those who want to pursue an international career as it is dynamic and cosmopolitan; not to mention that it is the world's most important financial center, and hosts all the leading law firms, which allow us to learn from the major source, and have plenty options of work after graduation.
As soon as I got to the Strand campus I knew that I could not have made a better choice; the atmosphere is friendly, but at the same time serious, it exhales knowledge. The teachers are extremely qualified and committed, the students are very prepared, and the library is a must. The various departments and societies often promote seminars about a wide range of interesting subjects, as well as workshops with companies and law firms.
Studying at King's will give you the chance to make friends from all over the world; it means that you will not only learn about academic subjects but also about different cultures and traditions.
Moreover, King's offers a vast range of funding opportunities. I had the honor to be awarded with two scholarships, from the university and from Bank Santander, and it certainly enabled me to get the most out of my experience.
Finally, I will never forget my first class in King's, when one of my teachers cited Samuel Johnson: "When a man gets tired of London, he is tired of life". I think it summarizes everything!
