I joined King's to study for a PhD in analytical chemistry. Foreseeing a future in industry, I wanted a programme of study that would equip me with skills that are required not only in the laboratory but also day to day life. Being part of the Forensic Science and Drug Monitoring Research Division (incorporating the world renowned Drug Control Centre) has provided me with some fantastic opportunities to enhance and develop these skills, opening up a variety of career opportunities.
I have been interested in pharmaceutical research since undergraduate studies. So after obtaining my master's degree in China and feeling confident in myself, I have been determined to pursue my PhD study at King's. I thought the professors here make a great contribution to pharmaceutical sciences before I came - now this has been proven by the reality. I am very lucky that I have become a student at King's and sponsored by King's (KORS). During this process, the staff from here have helped me a lot and it makes everything go well. I should say thanks to them.
I am very happy that I am learning at King's. King's is very student-oriented. They help you resolve all the problems and make your life and study here not be disturbed. King's is a big family and I can make contact with students from all over the world. I enjoy the good relationship between my supervisor and me. She is kind and responsible and leads me to a higher research point. But it would not work if there were not such a good research setting at King's.
One more thing I have to mention is that once studying in London you will enjoy a different social life, seeing political figures, singers and royal members, visiting museums, galleries, concert halls, taking part in parties, parades, Olympic torch relay, raising money for charities and all kinds of volunteer work. You will benefit from not only studying at King's but also living in London. Once you have been here, you will never be ready to leave.
