I am Student Representative within the Department and on the School Education Committee, a member of the leading field organisations (ACM, IEEE and BCS) and in the Editorial Panel of the IEEE newsletter. This year, I was selected to volunteer at SC11 (a leading conference in high performance computing), won an ACM-W scholarship, the King’s JP Morgan prize and the BCS Lovelace poster competition.
I work as a Data Management Developer and in the future want to participate in research and science-related computing projects, for which my degree constitutes an ideal foundation.
Living in London can be costly, so students should pay attention to the way they manage their budget. The college offers very good advice and literature on how to best manage your income and plan ahead. Students have access to a range of discounts in various shops, from stationary to clothing and the Oyster travel card. If you live centrally, then you may want to consider a bus pass rather than the tube pass or even cycling as this would save you a lot on your travel budget.
If you want to save money on rent, living a bit less centrally may help - college halls may also be an option, as well as sharing a flat with other friends or students. King’s offer some scholarships, so look out for them on the college website.
