I graduated in Physics in Rome in 2007 working on a project on metabolic networks. For my PhD I wanted to research something similar and as exciting, so when my former supervisor recommended me to the Disordered Systems Group at King's I knew that was the best choice I could make. In fact there were very few places in Europe offering a comparable level of expertise and research quality.
Another great opportunity I enjoyed a lot at King's was giving tutorials to undergraduate students. This really helps you get used to teaching and enhances your knowledge transfer skills.
There are different funding opportunities in the Mathematics Department: my scholarship covers tuition fees and provides a good monthly stipend.
A key feature of the undergraduate experience at King's for Mathematics students is automatic membership to the King's College London Mathematics Society (KCL MathSoc). The KCL MathSoc is over 50 years old and has over 500 members who appreciate the beauty of mathematics and share a common passion for it. Over the years it has organised countless events and excursions including an annual trip to Cumberland Lodge, talks with financial and banking firms, and other social activities.
King's graduates are highly sought after both nationally and internationally in a wide range of professions. A degree in mathematics is one of the most flexible qualifications you can obtain, and as a result graduates are among the best paid and the least likely to be unemployed. Six months after graduating, 86% of 2009 Mathematics graduates were in full time employment. Recent King's graduates have found employment as tax consultants, financial analysts, traders, office managers, management consultants and secondary school teachers.
