International student profiles
King's became top of my priorities for my master's because of its reputation. Prominent people graduating from this college inspired me to come here because this was evidence it would enhance my intellectual development and reputation.
I also love the environment and the facilities of the college, especially the new refurbished library at FWB and the way information is relayed to students. The location of my campus gives me, an international student, the opportunity to visit interesting places in London just by walking around.
I received the Commonwealth Shared Award and this made it possible for me to be here. As someone from a low income family there was no way I would have been able to raise that money for my postgraduate education. I plan to go back to my department to help establishing a nursing school in the university.
If anyone is thinking of going to a university for postgraduate education I recommend King's because they will not only develop your intellectual capabilities but also your reputation, skills and employment opportunities.

The School has world class reputation and provides a variety of modules and activities with high standard of teaching quality. Being a student in this multicultural community is a great experience. The diversity of opinions and perspectives of students who have different cultural and professional backgrounds constantly stimulates my ideas. It is also a privilege to be able to attend various seminars outside of the course.
Being an international student is challenging but also extremely rewarding. The school provides excellent support as well as useful information for international students.
I would highly recommend studying at King's to any nurses who are thinking of continuing their professional development at university level and who wish to enhance their skills and expertise.
Naho Ito, Japan, Clinical Nursing for International Students
I chose King's College London for my postgraduate study through a recommendation by one of my undergraduate lecturers who had visited King's during her sabbatical leave - she was impressed with the College's teaching approach and facilities.
There are two most striking things about King's which are the diversity of cultures and reputation. Because of the diversity of cultures you don't feel like a stranger since there are students from all over the world. The emphasis on evidence-based practice and prominent healthcare research programmes is indeed an eye opener in terms of improving healthcare services.
I am also happy to have found the resident chaplain for my church at the school, this has enabled me to participate in voluntary and other different church activities undertaken by the group.
My studies at King's are being funded through a shared scholarship between Kings and Commonwealth. After completion of my studies I will return to Zimbabwe and hope to be a leader and a researcher in healthcare practice. For those who dream of being the best leaders in healthcare, King's is the best place to be.
