King’s location is unrivalled, being right at the heart of London. This offers a whole array of opportunities for work and internships and use of world-class resources and libraries. Socially, it couldn’t be better placed and you can never run out of things to do in London! There are also so many free events as well as discounts for students to you can enjoy yourself even on a tight budget.
The English Language Centre helped me a lot when I first joined university by offering skills workshops to help me with the transition from A-levels, so I felt like I was supported and ready to take on university work.
I’m based at the Strand, which is an amazing location and is a beautiful campus with a lot of heart. Despite the building's historical feel, the classrooms inside are very modern and are fitted with the latest technology. The students' union services have also been refurbished this year and they’re a great place to hang out with your friends or get some work done.
I lived in intercollegiate halls which is one of the advantages of going to a University of London college, as I was able not only to meet people from King’s but students from all the other institutions in London.
King’s offers a lot of part-time work for its students, on and off-campus. You can work in the students' union or you can take part in the Student Ambassador Scheme. I’m a Student Ambassador and I love it, not only is it well-paid and flexible but also gives you an opportunity to represent your university. King’s Careers Service have also teamed up with a temping agency which offers jobs and so there are always opportunities for part-time work available to help you fund living in London and improve your CV.
