Biology & Chemistry

Yihan joined us from China to study the Biology & Chemistry pathway before progressing to Common Year One at King's. This year is shared between our suite of Bioscience degrees, which include Anatomy and Biomedical Sciences before students choose their programme for years two and three. Yihan found a love for genetics and went on to study MBBS Medical and Surgery at the University of Newcastle. Watch this short film and find out why you should "definitely choose King’s".

Hear from Martin, who had his heart set on a Biomedical Engineering degree at King’s. Despite being thousands of miles from his Venezuelan home he says the foundation ‘helped me a lot’, allowed him to make ‘friends from all over the world’ and made him ‘feel like [he is] at home’. He made the grade and was able to follow his heart to Biomedical Engineering (BEng) with us.

Global Politics & Social Science (was International Relations & Politics)

Sadaf wanted to study international relations at a prestigious global institution. The curriculum in Pakistan meant she needed to complete an International Foundation so she chose King’s and discovered ‘the entire world without visiting it!’. Initially, viewing the King’s Foundation as a means to an end, Sadaf thought she would study her degree somewhere else but found that ‘this is the place I want to be’. She went on to complete an International Relations (BA) at King’s.

Jiawen had an ‘amazing experience’ on her foundation, which made her ‘more confident’ and meant she could ‘finally write a 1200-word essay’ in English. Her love of arts and culture has seen her fall for King’s with its central London location, allowing her to visit the National Gallery after class and explore Chinatown when homesick. She went on to study Digital Culture (BA) (now Digital Media & Culture) at King’s.

Maths & Physics

Hamza tells us about choosing King’s because of ‘past students and their stories’. KCLSU societies helped him manage culture shock and he has enjoyed studying with students from around the world. He hopes to go on to study General Engineering at King’s.
