You are always close to excitement, and with business at your doorstep you can really start to picture where your future lies. The Careers service and my department have been very supportive in helping me and others to obtain internships in investment banks, and the institution’s reputation allows me to do that.
Computer Science is a stimulating and interesting course, and this year the group software project is enabling me to make more friends while being able to enjoy making software too. I’m currently a member of the Swimming society, the Finance society and even the Ukulele society, and the students' union is nothing short of lively - I even pursued a charity skydive in my first year! London is truly what you make of it, and the opportunities here with support from King’s are sure to lead you to success and enjoy yourself while you at it.
I am delighted to be studying at King’s, mainly because of its fantastic and vibrant atmosphere that is portrayed through its academic reputation and amazing location.
King’s provides an incredible platform for development and learning, both as a student and as an individual. The Informatics department is home to many friendly and approachable academic and administrative staff; as a member of the King’s College London Computing Society Committee (KCLCS) I play a key role in the organisation of many social events that aim to diminish the formal barriers between staff and students.
Furthermore studying computer science at King’s has opened many career opportunities; following advice from the college’s Careers Service, I was able to complete an internship at one of the largest investment banks in the world and was offered a full-time position. Apart from my academic studies I was also involved in a student Scheme designed to help new students integrate into university life more effectively. Studying in central London is an amazing opportunity to meet great people and experience student nightlife at its best. Whether you’re interested in live gigs, theatre or local attractions, there is always something for everyone.
During my time here, I have been involved with the KCL Computing Society, of which I am now the President. It has been an invaluable opportunity to develop skills such as time and people management, and has allowed me to leave a lasting impression at King’s by gaining sponsorship for the society for the first time and therefore increasing our funding.
After my degree, I will be going into Technology in Investment Banking, where I will be starting out as an Application Developer following on from an internship that I undertook at the end of the second year. The Careers Service were great in helping me with my CV and providing tips with regards to the interview process.
