I liked the different options that were offered as part of the course. I am currently in my third year, and will be taking part in the University Ambassador’s Scheme, going into a secondary school to help teach, and hopefully inspire younger students to carry on with physics!
I love playing for the KCL Women’s Hockey team - our matches on Wednesday afternoons are followed by socials afterwards at the Waterfront bar. If there is one bit of advice I would give new students, it would be to join a society - you’ll build up a huge fancy dress wardrobe, and it’s a really good way of making friends when you start uni.
The Careers Service at King’s is very good. I found my part time job through the part time work fair they have every year. I’m currently applying for graduate schemes, and the advice I have been given throughout my three years at King’s from the Careers Service has really helped.
Eventually I’d like to go into a career in medical physics, as inpsired by the medical physics modules, so I’m looking at a Masters at King’s, although I’d like to go travelling, and get some more work experience first.
I lived at Great Dover Street halls in first year - an ensuite bathroom all to myself sold me, and I could walk to lectures every day, which was a really good way to save money.
There’s so much to do in London. I love the Zoo Late nights at London Zoo – even businessmen come straight from work in their suits and run around wearing facepaint! Comedy clubs are cheaper in the week, and theatres have discounted tickets on the day. Always ask for a student discount; a lot of places won’t mention that they do give discount.
I’ve loved my three years at King’s!
