Spanish & Spanish American Studies Research MPhil/PhD
My association with King's has been a long and fruitful one. I first came to the Department of Spanish & Spanish American Studies as an undergraduate in the mid- 1990s and my experience was a good one, so when I decided to write a doctorate, the department was a natural choice.
The proximity of the river, South Bank, City, Covent Garden and Bloomsbury to King's means that long research days are counterbalanced by all that is good about London living. Opportunities for work and fun are plentiful and the British Library is just a couple of bus stops away.
I fund my studies personally, supplementing fees and research trips with bursaries and grants. The Department of Spanish & Spanish American Studies at King's has a fantastic success rate for obtaining funding for its students. I chose to study part-time and continue working in order to maintain an equal balance between the two. Knowing that the department and the School of Humanities are supportive of the needs of part time, mature students offers the reassurance one needs to make the important decision of returning to study.
