King’s is a prestigious university with an excellent reputation around the world; the fact that it is in the heart of London is an added bonus!
While many graduate degrees take two years to complete, especially in the US, the King’s full-time program takes a year. The MA modular programme is set up in a way that students have a vast choice of classes, not only at King’s but also at other University of London colleges.
The Waterloo Campus has a state-of-the-art, well-equipped library with quiet areas and private study rooms, which really come in handy especially for group work. The teaching staff are very informative, helpful and eager to share their knowledge and expertise. Classes are filled with students from all over the world who bring unique and interesting viewpoints to discussions.
King’s College organises tons of events, both social and academic that students can attend, and clubs (ukulele, Harry Potter appreciation society!) where members can share their hobbies and interests. During my year at King’s I have really enjoyed being a Student Representative and have gained some insight into both how the education department and the College in general are run. I am very impressed with how involved staff members are in ensuring their students have a great experience while attending King’s.
The skills and qualifications I have gained at King’s will no doubt help me further my professional career; I move back to Hong Kong to teach primary 1 in two weeks. I encourage prospective students to utilize all the facilities available to King’s students and enjoy their time in historic, vibrant London!
