Having grown up in Iran and living in Canada, I decided to choose King’s and move to London because I was looking for a truly globally-orientated education. Studying in the centre of this exciting and vibrant city, I thought, would enable me to gain insight into international politics beyond my lecture halls. Not only has this proved to be true, but the diversity within my course has provided me with a rich and stimulating environment for a global understanding of international politics.
The staff are leading experts with very different backgrounds, enabling students to gain a holistic understanding of international politics. The students come from all around the world. Consequently, the variety of opinions and ideas that are exchanged in lectures and seminars creates a unique learning environment.
Life at King’s does not only involve academia for me. The energy and passion that studying at King’s has given me has motivated me to get involved in extra-curricular activities, namely representing international students at the Department of Political Economy and leading the KCL Politics Society as its President.
After graduation, I will leave King’s with many great memories of the friendly and fun student body and the kind and inspirational staff. The skills I will have acquired by the end of my degree will equip me for life.
