I chose to study the MSc Global Environmental Change because of its multidisciplinary approach, its student-faculty interaction and highly experienced faculty members, many of whom also engage in consulting and research work.
The optional modules are very interesting and I actually had a bit of difficulty deciding in only two and consequently I decided to audit one more. I chose 'Environmental Actors and Politics' and 'Environmental Internship' as the two optional courses for the year. I have now secured an internship at a consultancy in which I will acquire important knowledge for my professional future.
The Department of Geography, is located at the Strand campus which is a beautiful place to study in. As master's students we have exclusive access to facilities created especially for us, such as the common room, the computer laboratory and computer rooms in the Maughan Library (within a 5 minutes walk reach from the Strand).
Seminars at the Department are organised on a weekly basis and are always followed by a reception which helps to get to know more of the students in the Department. There is also a weekly pub trip to which all are invited, professors and students.
Thanks to Conacyt (Mexican Government scholarship organisation), a great part of my living expenses and tuition fees are covered. This has undoubtedly helped to focus my attention on studying and not to worry about taking a part-time job.
When I finish writing my dissertation I will search for a job in consultancy as I want to develop experience in this field. Later on I would like to open my own consultancy in Mexico.
King's is undoubtedly the best choice I could have selected. As the days go by the only thing that worries me is that I'm running out of time!
