Arjun India Pharmaceutical Technology MSc What a learning experience it has been for me at King’s! Whether it was the teaching delivered by the finest brains in the world, or interacting with students from different parts of the world, the experience has been an enriching one. In fact it is not merely because of the facilities that are offered at King’s but also its superb faculty that I recommend King’s to everyone.
Academics are extremely supportive. They not only encourage you to read widely, to research thoroughly and to question what you learn at every opportunity but they constantly push you to achieve your best and still go beyond.
At Kings it’s not only hard work but a lot of fun too. Located in the heart of London, it offers a myriad of opportunities to suit every taste. From the wonderful museums, sports stadiums, movie theatres, multi-cuisine restaurants, blooming gardens and quaint little streets for a quiet stroll, London has it all.
Monica USA Pharmaceutical Technology MSc I choose King's because I wanted to live in London and the pharmaceutical division at King's had the exact kind of science I wanted to study. London's a fantastic city to live in and the facilities at the various King's campuses are very good.
Teaching undergraduate lab courses has been the most fun so far, and it's a great way to make some extra money. My advice is to get into teaching as quickly as possible so that you meet lots of people and become familiar with all the facilities available.
I funded myself during my first year but was lucky to get funding from a pharmaceutical company in my second year. You can check whether your potential supervisors have access to private corporations that might be interested in funding you. Be sure to research them.
I will live in student accommodation all three years that I am here. It's great to be a senior student in housing because it gives you a place to live and extra money. King's has a pleasant student bar on the river with well-priced drinks. It's a very social part of King's. However, London is a fantastic city and there is plenty to do for free. Always carry your student ID for those plentiful student discounts! After I have completed my study I plan to return to America to and work within the pharmaceutical industry.
