Genetics & Molecular Medicine (Research Division) MPhil/PhD
Having completed my undergraduate degree in Genetics, I was keen to take my studies further and undertake a PhD. King’s College was at the top of my list because of its worldwide reputation for both teaching and research.
I was awarded a PhD studentship at the College, funded by the BBSRC, which has enabled me to work at the forefront of scientific research in a stimulating and supportive environment. In addition, I have attended an international conference, funded by the College where I was able to present my current data. There is also a wide range of very good courses available to all graduate students to aid development and to gain valuable transferable skills.
As well as my academic studies, I am a member of the KCLMS badminton team and play against other universities in and around London. I have also had a great time playing ultimate frisbee, which I would never have done unless it was offered at King’s. Whatever your interests, there will be a club or society out there for you to get involved with. Living in London is a fantastic experience, there is never a dull moment and you will never run out of places to go or things to see. It may be expensive, but the London weighting on the studentships makes it very affordable.
King’s has given me the perfect training and personal skills in order to compete for any top research job throughout the world. I intend to continue my research career, starting with a job in Europe. I would recommend King’s College to anyone looking to advance their career in scientific research.
