French & Modern Greek Studies with a year abroad BA
King’s College is an exciting university to be at, not only because it is in the very heart of London but also because of its fantastic reputation and vibrant student community. I chose King’s because of its prestige and high graduate employment rate. I chose to study French and Modern Greek because the programme looked enjoyable yet challenging. Being a quarter Greek, I really enjoy learning about Greece’s history, literature and traditions. Seminar groups are small and therefore it is easy to ask questions and have your opinions heard. My language skills have improved to a huge extent.
Living in London is something that everyone should do and being a student is when you can really enjoy it because there are many free activities on offer. I can guarantee that the Waterfront Bar at the Strand Campus has the best view you will ever see from any university in the world! When I finish my degree, apart from being sad to leave, I know I will be ready to face the future with confidence. My goal is to interpret for the European Union and my King’s degree is a fantastic start.
