English Research MPhil/PhD, option of joint PhD with HKU/NUS
I came to King’s from Australia with pretty clear ideas about what I wanted to achieve, and from the first day of my PhD those ideas have been nurtured, sometimes challenged and always invigorated. I’ve worked with brilliant academics and had amazing opportunities for travel, leadership, research and teaching. I’ve led a programme of research skills lunches in the English Department, founded a poetry reading group and helped manage a groundbreaking teaching initiative. I’ve also benefited from access to first rate libraries (including the Foyle Special Collections, King’s, and the British Library). King’s has encouraged me to achieve well, and helped me develop the skills and courage to do it.
For me, the benefits of living in London include access to travel, and the fact that every touring dance, theatre and music company comes here. I’ve also spent many happy weekends exploring towns, great houses and parks just outside of the city. As a contemporary Constantinople, London inspires and challenges me to see differently, understand more, and consider people in new ways.
