Laura UK Public Policy MA As I already live and work in London, I decided to apply to King's because of its central London location and also because of its strong academic reputation. The course has helped me to be more insightful and knowledgeable at work at a national government agency and should also help me in the future when applying for promotions or other government roles. The department has been supportive, as have my fellow course mates.
Nina Bosnia and Herzegovina Public Policy MA I am an international student from Bosnia and Herzegovina and I came to study Public Policy as a Chevening scholarship fellow. Upon receiving the Chevening scholarship, I was faced with the daunting task of selecting a university for my studies in the UK. The reputation of King's and its surge up the rankings was a strong influence on my selection. Once I added the fact that King's is located in central London, I easily made up my mind. I decided on King's and have not regretted this choice for a second.
The programme is very creative and provides an extensive knowledge in different areas of public policy. At the same time it is demanding and challenging, but with a disciplined effort, one can achieve solid results. We are taught to think intensively and what we learn is that there are no absolute choices, just best possible ones.
The academics are outstanding professionals who are always ready to assist students. Loads of practical examples and case studies accompany lectures as do leading guest lecturers from the governmental, non-governmental and academic world. Ten months later, I can only confirm that the MA in Public Policy at King's has excellent academics, sound teaching facilities, and is great a springboard for future job seekers.
