Bo China Public Services Policy & Management MSc I chose King's for my graduate study mainly because of its prestigious reputation both in the UK and abroad. Most important for me were the excellent teaching staff and well-designed modules, which were recommended by alumni and have guaranteed an exciting, challenging and fruitful year of study.
I was most impressed by some of the modules in my programme, such as Human Resource Management, which was taught by a number of eminent professors in the field and combined informative lectures, interesting case studies and challenging coursework.
I have also attended many seminars organised by both the university and outside organisations, which gave me wonderful opportunities to broaden my vision and connect what I learnt in class with reality.
I funded myself to study here. I plan to go back to my country, China, after graduation and work for the government or other organisations in public services. I believe my training at King's will help me both in seeking employment and pursuing a promising career in public services.
Alison Wolf Public Services Policy & Management MSc 'How best to deliver public services is a major challenge for contemporary societies. Ideas have changed quite dramatically over the last few decades, and the UK has been in the fore-front.
Our programme taps directly into the policy community and its debates. It offers contributions from leading practitioners as well as drawing on students' own public and voluntary sector experience. It is exciting to teach a course that grapples with major public service dilemmas and also links directly with my own research. This concerns governments' roles in higher education and in developing workforce skills - two areas among many with both international relevance and considerable room for more, and better, evidence-based policy-making.'
