The Waterloo campus is home to a variety of degrees. This allows for socialising with other students who are not on your course. King's offers a wide range of societies, from the Pharmacy Society to the Dance society and I would recommend joining as many as you can. King's halls are very accommodating and located near campuses. I lived at Brian Creamer Halls in Lambeth, just 10 minutes walk from Waterloo.
After the final year of my degree I will be undertaking a pre registration year at Guys and St. Thomas' Hospital, in which I will train to become a practicing pharmacist. In the future I hope to further my career as a Hospital Pharmacist and study a clinical specialty. I feel I have been well prepared by my degree to undertake this as there has been practical experience from my first year.
In my first year I stayed in Stamford street apartments, which is literally across the road from the Waterloo campus - very convenient for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and it helped me to become much more independent.
The advantage of being in London is that it is one of the most cosmopolitan and multicultural cities in the world; students will be expose to all aspects of life. I have a part-time job and the extra money gained is helpful, while working allows me to get away and take my mind off university. Living in London provides you with phenomenal opportunities and links in whatever profession you are studying for.
