German & Music with a year abroad BA
The best aspects of studying German at King’s are firstly the diversity of the course and secondly the excellent teaching staff. There are so many modules to choose from such as history, literature, politics, philisophy, linguistics as well as many more and I have especially enjoyed the literature modules i have taken in both my first and second years. This is a true testimony to the lecturers of the department as before coming to university I thought that I disliked studying literature and was not looking forward to that aspect of my degree.
I chose King’s because of the reputation of the department but more importantly because of its location in the heart of London. I have always wanted to live in London so the excellent department combined with the location made King’s the perfect choice!
King’s was also an attractive choice for me due to the amount of activities there are here to get involved in. I am a member of the KCL Running Club, which has given me the opportunity to travel all over London to take part in races against other London Colleges and it has been a great way to make friends outside my course. I am also a Committee member of the King’s College London Symphony Orchestra
after being in the orchestra during my first year, and being involved in this has been a great way to take part in the King’s Community. Overall, I think that the extra-curricular opportunities combined with its location and acdemic reputation make King’s a fantastic place to study!
