Myung Ae Choi - Geography Research MPhil/PhD with option of joint PhD with HKU/Humboldt/NUS
For my PhD journey, I thought of no other university but King's, not only because of its world-renowned reputation but also of my personal experience here studying for my MSc. King's is an institution not made from grey academics and brick buildings, but from well established academic knowledge, curiosity for the unknown world, and a search for a better alternative; not to mention brilliant students and inspiring academics from all over the world.
I learned from aptly prepared classes as well as from fellow students sharing experiences and enthusiasm over a cup of coffee after classes. I was particularly impressed by my dear lecturers and professors who always paid keen attention to my murmuring about other cultures and societies.
On the completion of the MSc programme in Geography, I felt assured that King's had deepened and broadened my scope of the world. With the support of King's Alumni Bursaries, I am grateful to continue my research to contribute to a better world, which King's has taught me to do so.
Yunbo Shim (Ewha Womans University) - Summer School
"I have chosen to attend King’s Summer School because of its well known academic reputation and curriculum. Especially, Law at King’s is recognized globally as one of the UK’s top five law schools. In addition, situated in the heart of London which offers a vast resource for experience-based learning.
I really enjoyed the English Legal System course. By examining primary and secondary sources, and through TV and film, I could have the opportunity to understand the English legal system better. In addition, we learnt not only inside the classroom but also from lots of visits outside. The location at the campus places us in the heart of the British legal world such as the Old Bailey, the Supreme Court and the Royal Courts of Justice, with Parliament and government departments, within walking distance.
Participating in King’s Summer School broadened my horizons. I really learned a lot from both in and out of the classroom. Especially, visiting the all the courts was amazing.
London provides a broad range of culturally diverse experiences and entertainments therfore my advice to students would be always be on the lookout for new opportunities and experiences. Try to get involved in as much as you can. There are so many things going on. Take advantage of King’s location and make the most of your time while you are in London.
Participating in King’s College Summer School has lived up to my expectations. I have experienced diversity and different lifestyles, gained intercultural communication skills, and will return home with a greater sense of self.
King’s Summer School will provide you a unique opportunity to study and live in London, at the very heart of the most vibrant, interesting city in the world whilst helping to differentiate you from the millions of others students"!
Saang-Won - International Studies & Academic English Grad Dip
When I arrived to study in the UK last year, college life was a big challenge. I had little knowledge about war studies and my English wasn’t good. However, this programme helped me improve through its customised classes.
As time went by, I became more and more interested in the programme and I could attend classes with pleasure and confidence. During the course, I developed and improved various skills which are essential to me in my MA.
