Niki Cheong, MA in Digital Culture & Society, Writer and Researcher

“I studied for the MA in Digital Culture and Society after years in journalism attempting to navigate the new digital landscape. I left KCL with a better understanding of the digital space, both from a theoretical perspective as well as through the more practical skills I picked up. Most significantly, I learned to find a balance in all my work between the online and offline world.  

"Equipped with the knowledge and confidence to forge ahead in different fields, I have since revisited my journalistic roots, consulted for digital agencies, published a book and worked on several storytelling projects in Malaysia as well as re-engaging with academia as a lecturer and PhD researcher. The relationships I built during my year at KCL have also been invaluable - I now consider some of my former KCL lecturers friends, and some of my classmates my strongest pillars of support.”

Romane Dagain, MA Digital Asset & Media Management, Data Manager at Unruly.co

“After a BA in French and English Literature, I chose to undertake a part-time Masters program in Digital Asset and Media Management as a way for me to bridge my interests in both the Humanities and emerging technologies. During my time at King’s College London, my main focus was on how innovative media could enable interactive and creative storytelling, allowing me to explore new and exciting areas of research. Most importantly, as a part-time student, the support of the staff and the quality of the teaching enabled me to advance my career as a technology professional, while being fully immersed in the academic life of Kings. Now a data analyst for a global digital advertising company, the Masters program, with classes tailored to the realities of the industry, gave me the necessary skills and tools to navigate the ever-changing worlds of big data.”
