The department of Informatics at King's is one of the oldest in the country. When I say I am from King's College London it holds a lot of merit.
In my penultimate year I was able to secure a placement at Accenture (the world's largest consultancy company) and a summer internship at Google working in collaboration with Harvard University. Without the structure provided by the department I would not have had the chance to experience the industry first hand.
Studying at King's will challenge you. By the end of the first year we had developed a game and in the second year developed the software for an autonomous robot. I am now in my final year writing a dissertation that will contribute something to the field.
Living in King's College Halls (KCH) gave me the opportunity to talk and learn from amazing students from every part of the world at breakfast and dinner. There are a wide variety of facilities onsite including two libraries, two full-sized squash courts, a games room and a common room. I loved it so much I returned the following year as a Senior Student to support the new students and organise events.
During my time on the course I have developed both as a person and as a professional.
